TeachMeet: How can wellbeing be prioritised in the classroom?


Group of people sat in a row of seat laughing

We’re inviting teachers and educators to join us for a conversation about the impact of and need for focusing on wellbeing in schools.

Join fellow teachers, cultural practitioners, and our staff in a conversation about new 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 at the Barbican for drinks, presentations, and a complimentary ticket offer to an exhibition or film of your choice, or just tune in remotely for the presentations.

Tickets are free but booking is essential.

Want to present?

TeachMeets are free networking and practice-sharing events for teachers. Each TeachMeet is themed around a specific topic, and we invite teachers to present on a subject relating to that topic. There are two presenting formats: a seven-minute 'Micro' presentation and a three-minute 'Nano' presentation. Teachers are welcome to share something they are proud of or can talk about something that didn’t go quite as planned.

If you wish to present in addition to attending, please contact [email protected] with ‘TeachMeet Presentation’ in the subject line, with some details on what you’d like to share
