Newham & East London Art Teacher's Network

The Newham and East London Art Teachers Network, meet once a term, in one of our local secondary schools. The network is made up of mainly Newham and Barking Secondary Art teachers; however we are keen to open up the meeting to other East London secondary schools. We work in partnership with University Arts London (UAL) and usually come together each year through our local Art Matters Exhibition in the summer term.

The meetings are an opportunity to share good practice, discuss joint and local initiatives and update on issues affecting art and art education. Visiting speakers from art institutions and establishments are key to developing external links and partnerships.

For enquiries please contact: Rachana Vaja, Cultural Arts Lead Riverside Secondary School: secondaryartmatters@gmail.com
