Educators CPD evening: Contemporary Art in the Classroom

Thursday 25 May 2017, 17:00 to 20:00

Join us for an evening of free, informal CPD, all educators are welcome, both for those working in formal and informal education. This session will include creative activities that could be used in classrooms and workshops, led by artist Karanjit Panesar.

Karanjit Panesar  is one of Arnolfini's artist educators and has been working with us to devise classroom workshops that explore identity. 
Karanjit Panesar (b. 1992) is an artist based in Bristol, working between sculpture, video, painting and text. Recent projects include exhibitions at Crown Building Studios (Liverpool), Bomb Factory Art Foundation (London), Chisenhale Art Place (London) and residency at Plymouth Arts Centre. Upcoming shows include Serf projects (Leeds) and Two Queens (Leicester). He is the co-founder and director of East Bristol Contemporary, a gallery based at the Trinity Centre, Easton.

The session will start with a private tour of The Stars Were Aligned for a Century of New Beginnings, the first UK solo exhibition by Egyptian artist Basim Magdy. During the tour there will be time to discuss the work and themes within the exhibition and how it might be used in a classroom setting.

There will also be time to discuss and share what you are currently working on within your own contexts and to get to know other educators from Bristol and the surrounding areas. The event is informal and conversation-focused, as well as being a chance to learn from others. 

Nibbles and wine will be provided!

This opportunity is open to all educators, across both formal and informal education. Email to reserve your place and please send through your name and a contact number.

The event takes place at Arnolfini, 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol BS1 4QA
