Art Practitioner - Museums and Galleries Partners in Education, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums


Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (TWAM), have been awarded funding by Paul Hamlyn Foundation through their Teacher Development Fund. This funding will support teachers to work with artists and local arts and cultural resources in order to increase creative learning opportunities for their pupils. The programme is funded through the Teacher Development Fund awarded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

During the MAGPIE project TWAM will be working with ten schools from across Tyneside.  Over two years teachers from each of the schools will work with TWAM’s museums and galleries to draw on inspiration from museum collections via visual arts and creative writing to support pupils’ speech and language development through enquiry-based learning approaches.

Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums require 3 freelance Art Practitioners with expertise in drawing, creative writing or designing and making, with the ability to share the creative processes with Teachers and Museum educators.  Please note that this commission is to assist with the delivery of sessions and support participants during the first year of the programme, however further commissions to support year two may be possible.
