Schools, families and the community
We’re dedicated to providing inclusive learning programmes for schools, families, communities and adult learners.
We want everyone to discover the powerful works in the Ben Uri Collection and learn about Ben Uri’s artists and their stories, while developing creative and critical skills for exploring art and design.
Our award winning team have been consecutive National Sanford Heritage Education Award winners and work in collaboration with London Grid for Learning (LGFL) and the National Education Network, which gives 25,000 schools access to learning resources.
Schools and teachers
We offer specialist school lesson programming which tie in with the curriculum as well as professional development for teachers. You can bring your students for a gallery visit or we can come to you, join us for teachers’ events and INSET sessions or download our free learning resources to use at a time to suit you. Ben Uri is also an Arts Award Supporter.

Community and Wellbeing
Both Ben Uri’s collection and our work in the community focus on universal themes of art, identity and migration. We work with audiences from a range of communities – young and old – in our exploration of contemporary issues through art and social history. This enables us to use our own history, to connect with others and share in a great range of stories.
