Interpreting Cultural Capital for your Primary Art Setting

Following on from the presentation Emily gave at the NSEAD national conference, this online CPD session will build on ideas of how primary art leaders can approach Cultural Capital.

Online twilight CPD

Tuesday November 3rd 4-6.30 pm

Course Tutor: Emily Gopaul

For primary school art and design leaders, this course will help you to: 

  • Learn ways of developing schemes of work and/or refining your existing provision to:
  • Foster a genuine appreciation of diversity in your school
  • Provide opportunities for children to celebrate their own cultural backgrounds 
  • Offer engagement with the rich cultural resources available, relating to other art and artists


The session will include practical 'takeaways' and tried and tested approaches.
