This information will support you in the promotion of the Life After Lockdown Project to your students, while they are at home and during lockdown arrangements
The Life After Lockdown Project has been developed by a group of former art and design consultants and educators. It has been created with the support of NSEAD.
The Life After Lockdown Project was created with the intention of providing a means for individuals to have the opportunity to create and exhibit a piece of creative visual work via an online exhibition.
This Project has arisen in response to the loss of opportunity for many students to sit their art and design examination and complete coursework for assessment. We appreciate that many of these young people are intending to go on to study, for example, A Level, BTEC, National Higher/Advanced courses or begin a course in art and design at Higher Education. We are seeking to support these young people in advancing their creative progress and sustaining a personal commitment to their creative development. This project aims to showcase the creativity of young people in the UK by asking them to consider how the Covid 19 Pandemic might change society and inviting them to make a work responding to it for submission and exhibition.
What do Teachers have to do?
We would be grateful to have the assistance of art and design teachers and NSEAD members in bringing the links to this project to the attention of their students aged 16-19. Can we ask you to do the following:
- Send a link to current and former students
- Ask if they are interested
- Encourage participation
- Make suggestions about possible influences and stimuli that might help them develop their creative ideas
The Life After Lockdown Project reserves the right to select submitted work for inclusion in the online exhibition/gallery. It is our intention that a selection of work exhibited will become an exhibition in a nationally recognised art gallery. We aim to share information on this as soon as the online exhibition is completed and discussions with galleries confirm arrangements.
