Schools engagement

UTS ART Education and Outreach provides students with a range of bespoke, interactive workshops that explore the exhibitions’ themes and artists’ practice. Workshops are often designed and led by UTS Gallery’s exhibiting artists providing students with direct contact with the artist and their practice.

Our in-gallery workshops are available to pre, primary and secondary students. They are complimented by a range of online resources that provide accessible insight into the artists’ work, their modes of practice and aspects of the art world, including curatorial practice.

For Stage 6 students UTS ART offers lunch time and after school tours and Q&A sessions with artists, curators and art world professionals. These sessions are designed to be short and intensive providing students with the rare and invaluable experience of direct interaction with those making their careers in the arts.

UTS staff and students

UTS Gallery hosts tutorials for academics and their students when an exhibition compliments students’ course work requirements.

UTS ART Collection holds a range of contemporary art pieces that are on display across campus. These include a broad selection of contemporary Indigenous art, particularly on display on level 6 of UTS tower outside Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning. Tours can be arranged for students and academics to gain an understanding of the variety of contemporary Indigenous art and to raise students’ cultural awareness, in line with the UTS Indigenous Education Strategy.

Indigenous engagement

UTS ART works in collaboration with Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning to provide future Indigenous UTS students with a range of art workshops and cultural activities on UTS campus. We create art experiences using the Indigenous art within the UTS ART Collection, Indigenous exhibitions held at UTS Gallery and collaborations with local cultural spaces including Sydney Story Factory and Bangarra Dance Theatre.
