About the Conference
A Difference Game: Young people working with art and artists will focus on three key
areas of discussion:
Is the gallery a school?
Questioning if gallery education is more effective when aligned with the pedagogies of formal education or when situated within the strategies of radical education practice.
Exploring what partnership can teach us about engaging young people more broadly in
The ethics of peer-led practice
