If you have a professional interest in art, craft & design education, NSEAD membership is, quite simply, an essential.
We represent you - your subject, your learners.
NSEAD is unique. Established in 1888, NSEAD is the only trade union, learned society and professional body for art, craft & design educators across the UK.
Join our Subject Association (as an indivdual or an organisation) and be part of our thriving community of art educators. Or join our Trade Union, and your subscription includes all NSEAD Subject Association benefits.
"NSEAD inspires me, reassures me, gives me hope"
