Unique partnerships inspiring the curriculum

Teach Meet

teech meet

We’re inviting teachers and educators to join us in a discussion about unique partnerships – from artists to employers, to new ways of integrating the arts across the curriculum. 

Join fellow teachers, cultural practitioners, and our staff in a conversation about collaborative approaches from the classroom and beyond. 

This free hybrid event will include fun and informal presentations and, an opportunity to connect with other teachers. Join us in person in our Pit Theatre at the Barbican for drinks, presentations, and a complimentary ticket offer to an exhibition, concert, or film of your choice on the night, or just tune in remotely for the presentations.

Once you’ve booked a ticket, you’ll be sent instructions by email on how to join the online session in the week of the event, if you can’t join us in person. The presentations will start promptly at 5pm so we recommend that you set up your Zoom account in advance. If you’re having issues accessing the event then please contact us at [email protected]

Want to present?

We invite you to present on any subject with a particular focus on unique partnerships inspiring the curriculum through the arts. You can share something you are proud of or tell us about something that didn’t go quite as planned. There are two presenting formats; a seven-minute ‘Micro’ presentation and a three-minute ‘Nano’ presentation. If you wish to present, please contact [email protected] with ‘Teach Meet Presentation’ in the subject line, and details on what you’d like to share. 

Please note presentation slots are for teachers in the first instance. If other organisations want to present, please get in touch to propose a presentation. We will confirm if there is space closer to the date.
