The Future of Art History in Education

Posted on Wednesday, 16th November 2016

Friday 25 November, Courtauld Institute of Art, 6 - 7.30pm, FREE
This evening debate will focus on the future of art history in education, against a backdrop of recent events surrounding the History of Art A Level. A panel of invited speakers will discuss the causes, consequences and clamour surrounding the announcement that the A Level may disappear, discussing how we got to where we are, what action should be taken to move things forward, and what art history in education looks like in the long-term. The panel will reflect from the perspective of schools, universities, cultural organisations, asking why art history is important and what we need to do to encourage and nurture a more meaningful, thoughtful relationship with the arts and visual culture.
