Description

Do you know someone doing excellent and inspirational work in gallery or visual art education and learning?

The awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working in learning and education within gallery or visual arts contexts (freelance, salaried or as volunteers) in the UK and internationally. We recognise that 2020 has been a difficult year for those working in the arts, and we welcome nominations for colleagues whom you have worked with, including colleagues who are currently furloughed or whom you have stopped working with during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nominations Deadline: 10am on Tuesday 1 December 2020

Why nominate?

Running since 2011, the awards have successfully enabled winners to develop their arts education practice through funding attendance of courses and conferences, the joining of professional associations, visiting of good practice in the UK and abroad, funding of research, and by inspiring personal and professional confidence through the recognition of their work.  Each winner will receive £500.
