Open seminar event. Part of the AHRC funded research network ‘The Decorated School’ which is coordinated by Dr Catherine Burke, Faculty of Education.

The network is engaged in a two year project, researching the relationships between architects, artists and educators through the art which became part of the fabric of school buildings and their immediate environments in the 20th century. We are interested in understanding more about how the art came to be commissioned, how the subject matter was decided, what was its function, its life story and what ideas about education or childhood, if any, were intended to be conveyed.

Those who will find this event useful will be architects, architecture students, teachers, educationalists, historians of art and architecture, social historians, visual sociologists and artists.
