The National Gallery will host the national arts education program Articulation


The National Gallery will become the new home of Articulation, a national education program for students aged 14 to 23.

Articulation was established in 2006 by the Roche Court Educational Trust; an arts education charity formerly based at Roche Court Sculpture Park and the New Art Center in Wiltshire. The Trust helps children and young people to ‘look, think and talk’ about art to build confidence in themselves and their future.

It is now held across England, Scotland and Ireland to deliver the annual Articulation Award alongside a number of other articulation initiatives such as Discovery Days; the Discover Articulation Challenge and a growing alumni network with around 50 museums, galleries, universities and art associations

It is hoped that this move will ensure that the Articulation program continues to grow, reaching new regional audiences and leveraging the collection of its art collection.

The move is part of the National Gallery‘s efforts to reach out to communities across the UK and play a greater role in the nation’s well-being and education.

Leading arts professionals from across the country will be invited to support the work, with former contributors such as Antony Gormley, Hannah Rothschild, Tim Marlow, Hetain Patel and Zoe Whitely, as well as a focus on the Culture Show from the BBC.

The National Gallery also welcomes a major new funder: the Kusuma Trust to support Articulation.

Currently, more than 6,000 youth, teachers and arts educators participate in Articulation events each year.

The National Gallery aims to expand the program across all twelve regions of the UK and to increase the number of partner museums, galleries and educational institutions with which Articulation partners. and strive to reach secondary school students who are entitled to free school dinners.

Commenting, Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director of the National Gallery, said: “The Gallery’s team, collection and networks across the UK and internationally will enable Articulation to grow and achieve an even wider range of students, while remaining true to its original purpose. and ethos.
