Padua and Venice

The 2013 engage International Summer School welcomed thirty-six mid-career and senior educators, visual artists, curators and academics working in the field of gallery and museum education and engaged visual art practice, to review and develop their practice during a four-day residential course.

The programme focused on the theme of resilience and leadership in gallery and museum education and the visual arts sector. The peer-led event offered colleagues an opportunity for colleagues to work together to:
 - Reflect on aspects of current practice in gallery and museum education
 - Review current research and political agendas
 - Consider the positioning of gallery and museum education within the visual arts sector
 - Learn about international contexts for gallery and museum education
 - Network with UK and international colleagues

The event was hosted by the University of Padua, Northern Italy, from Tuesday 10 to Friday 13 September. In addition to peer-led sessions and workshops, the progamme included visits, tours and talks at the 55 Venice Biennale and other galleries, museums and heritage venues.
