About Engage

Engage is the lead advocacy and training network for gallery education.

We support arts educators, organisations and artists to work together with communities in dynamic, open exchanges that give everyone the opportunity to learn and benefit from the arts.

Engage is passionate about increasing access to, enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts.

One of Engage's key areas of focus is advocacy. Through the annual Engage members' survey and feedback from members we make the case for gallery education to funders, policymakers, and the media. Engage's Director and other colleagues raise the profile of gallery education and influence policy in the visual arts and learning by:

 - Participating in committees and alliances
 - Taking part in consultations
 - Getting involved with campaigns
 - Publishing research and advocacy documents
 - Carrying out surveys of the sector
