What does engage Scotland do?
engage Scotland offers a programme of events, projects and research supporting those working in learning and engagement in visual arts venues in Scotland. Several events, including networking and training meetings, are held each year across Scotland reflecting themes and concerns within the sector.
We currently have over 80 members representing organisations, artists and freelance gallery educators from across Scotland. Members include The National Galleries of Scotland; Glasgow Life; The Travelling Gallery, Pier Arts Centre, Stromness; Project Ability, Glasgow; Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen and Museums Galleries Scotland.
The Everyone Project
The Everyone project was operated by engage Scotland, part of the National Association for Gallery Education, between March 2010 and March 2012, with funding from the National Lottery through Creative Scotland and a grant from the Hugh Fraser Foundation.
Everyone explored and supported the development of access and disability equality in galleries and visual arts venues in Scotland. Case studies, more information and resources from the Everyone project have been gathered together here.
The outcomes of the Everyone project were shared at engage Scotland’s Conference, All Being Equal, in March 2012.
The Everyone film gives a short overview of the Everyone project. The film has captions.
engage Scotland’s work in the field of equalities continues as administering body for Go & See research grants during 2012-14, enabling representatives of Scottish arts organisations to research excellence in equalities and the arts in the UK and beyond.
