Cultural education news, research, policy and strategy

July 2020

We’ve compiled some recent Covid-19 guidance and information for individuals and organisations working across the cultural education sector:

Online Learning

The Leeds Music Education Partnership have put together some supporting documents about online learning.  These include:

After school clubs and other out of school settings
Museums, galleries, heritage and performing arts sites

Space for Learning: Covid Secure Project is helping museums, galleries, heritage and performing arts sites adapt their learning spaces and programmes in response to Covid-19.   Look out for guidance being published on the Space for Learning website over the summer and autumn of 2020.
Working together the Clore Duffield Foundation, Group for Education in Museums (GEM), Engage (the network for gallery education), and the Theatre Education Forum (TEF) are drawing up guidance on how learning spaces in museums, galleries, heritage and performing arts sites can manage the risk of transmission and be ‘Covid Secure’ when they reopen.  In line with guidance from Public Health England, and from the DCMS Recreation and Leisure taskforce on reopening, they are considering programming; guidance on fixtures and fittings (including digital); movement through sites; outdoor learning; handling art materials; and staffing/working with freelancers.
