Towner Eastbourne is working closely with the Coastal Schools Partnership as we look towards hosting the Turner Prize in 2023. The partnership has worked alongside us to develop, and now deliver a programme of schools-based workshops and CPD for teachers towards a visit offer and toolkit for Year 9 classes visiting the exhibition.
Working with the partnership means we have a direct route to communicating with teachers across the Eastbourne area. It means we can be much more effective with our time and resources and reach more teachers and students. We really enjoy the energy and enthusiasm which is shared through the Coastal Schools Partnership , despite teachers and students being under pressure and time poor.
Over the coming years we want to continue to work with the partnership to develop exciting and inspirational activities which support learning and aspiration across the curriculum. Through working with Coastal Schools Partnership and having access to the expertise of teachers and students the Learning Team at Towner Eastbourne better understand our role as an arts institution in supporting teachers and students, and as catalyst for creativity in schools in Eastbourne.
