The Whitworth

Building on lively and memorable connections between dance and sculpture made at Whitechapel Gallery (London), in 2013 we created bespoke workshops for the Primary School Programme of Whitworth Art Gallery (Manchester).

Teachers were shown how to explore Whitworth Art Gallery’s collection using movement.  Participants looked at the work of Visual Artist Richard Long as a starting point to create movement connected to the learning across curriculum subjects.  Teachers were given the tools to structure the work into a choreographed dance.  

The methods experienced showed teachers how the school curriculum can be approached and taught creatively using the arts.

‘It was honestly one of the best CPD experiences I have ever had in 10 years of teaching.’ Teacher, Birchfields Primary School, Manchester
