Teacher Professional Learning Spring Series

Join ACCA Education for a series of three artist-led, practical workshops developed alongside exhibition and multilingual installation, James Nguyen: Open Glossary.

Each session is led by one of the Open Glossary exhibiting artists, James Nguyen, Kate ten Buuren and Tamsen Hopkinson, sharing their practice and newly commissioned artwork. Artists will facilitate critical dialogue and art-making for participants to experiment with new approaches and techniques. The series places particular emphasis on collaborative practice, for teachers to expand their understanding of collaboration, as well as enabling classroom enquiry into the ethical and personal considerations when working with others.
