Queering the Art Classroom:
Queering the Art Classroom is an educational organisation. Our goal is to develop an art curriculum that allows students to explore gender and sexuality. We aim to make our schools and educational institutions inclusive for everyone. In particular, we recognise the needs and rights of all the characteristics listed as protected under the Equality Act of 2010. Therefore, we aspire to make Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex, Asexual and other gender non-conforming persons (LGBTQIA+) in education, such as teachers, students and parents, feel included within the system.
Queering the Art Classroom holds workshops for teachers, PGCE students and local community members who express an interest in wanting to Queer the Art Classroom. We run the workshops alongside lectures on the topics of queer theory and art education. We have a workshop running at Sutton House 10th July 2018. If you are interested in joining our workshops, please contact us for more information.
