Designed for primary, secondary and post 16 students, our resources can be used as part of a range of curriculum areas: Art & Design, Photography, Geography, History, PSHE, SRE, Citizenship, English and creative writing as well as discussion of contemporary issues.

Themes include social justice, politics of architecture, design and public space, community, identity and relationships as well as supporting an LGBTQ+ curriculum.

Activities are designed to be picked up and used in around the galleries and our building. Some activities can be used outdoors and independently of a visit.

They are designed to encourage observation, teamwork, communication and debate, making connections and exploring multiple perspectives through doing and making.

Resources include:

  • Acts of Looking: an activity exploring perspective through handling materials
  • View – Finders: an activity to support observation and creative writing
  • Hidden Structures: a building activity to ask critical questions
  • Kaleidoscopes: an activity to support experimentation and observation
  • Walk Ways: a set of creative walks

Teacher notes, visit information and an exhibition content guide are also available.

We encourage you to adapt resources to suit your group. We invite you to share photographs, responses and feedback on social media @nottm_contemp or with the team learn@nottinghamcontemporary.org

We hope the resources support connections and enjoyment of the exhibition, as well as a creative curriculum.
