OurHaus: Art, Design and Performance Educators’ Symposium

Event date
23 October 2019 (9am to 6pm)
OurHaus: Art, Design and Performance Educators’ Symposium


Art, Design and Performance Educators’ Symposium




This one-day symposium is aimed at art and design educators in secondary schools, FE colleges and universities, as well as artists, who are interested in finding out more about learning and teaching at the Bauhaus and exploring how aspects of the Bauhaus’ pedagogy could be taught in compulsory or higher education contexts.  

The day will involve talks and workshops led by Camberwell College of Arts students and academics from across the University of the Arts and will introduce participants to the Bauhaus’ rich and contested history, before focusing on two important aspects of Bauhaus teaching that Camberwell students have been engaged with this year.  

The symposium will feature a keynote provocation by UAL Professor of Creative Practice Pedagogy – Susan Orr and structured workshop activities, as well as working in small groups to sketch out learning and teaching activities emerging from the day that could be taught in their specific educational contexts. Participants will be invited for a special viewing of the exhibition Bauhaus: Utopia in Crisis at Camberwell Space. 

The National Society for Art & Design Education (NSEAD) will join us to share their work supporting curriculum development through peer networks. They will also be seeking participants’ ideas for collaboration between HE, FE and secondary school teachers and looking for ways that they can lead and facilitate them. 

Convened by Professor Daniel Sturgis and Ian Thompson (UAL Outreach Programme).

This event is part of OurHaus, a week-long festival that critically re-imagines the school’s legacy in our times and marks the culmination of a year-long project at UAL. 

OurHaus will include performances, workshops, exhibitions, screenings and talks by internationally renowned voices and emerging practitioners across Camberwell College of Arts and Central Saint Martins. One hundred years after its founding, we will ask what the Bauhaus means for contemporary artists, students and society?
