Art Educators are offered a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a full-day fieldtrip to a selection of Melbourne's favourite contemporary art spaces. Hosted by CCP, this event provides an inspirational forum for teachers to listen to and meet with arts professionals at various venues throughout the arts hub of Fitzroy.
A series of floortalks addressing aspects of the new VCE Studio Arts curriculum will be presented at each venue and teachers will meet a local artist in their studio. Teachers will extend their knowledge about publicly funded galleries, commercial galleries and artist run spaces. A delicious lunch at a local cafe is included.
Venues will include CCP, Seventh Gallery, Sutton Gallery, Deans Art, Gertrude Contemporary and Gertrude Studios. CCP and Gertrude Contemporary will be hosting exhibitions in association with the Melbourne International Arts Festival and Sutton Gallery will be exhibiting work by Elizabeth Gower.
