National Survey – Visualise: Race & Inclusion in Art Education by Runnymede Trust x Freelands Foundation

Runnymede Trust, the UK’s leading independent race equality think tank, and Freelands Foundation are collaborating on a landmark research co-commission which aims to support schools in the UK to make the teaching and learning of the visual arts more inclusive. This research project sets out to better understand barriers and possible solutions, to best provide practical support from resources to aiding teacher confidence. 

The research team would like to connect with art teachers in order to aid their research, and to better understand their views on diversity in the art curriculum, their experiences as educators, and what can be done to support them in the classroom.  Art teachers can participate by contributing to the teacher survey as part of this research project.  The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete, and will be used to produce online tools and resources to support teachers. 

Art students are also encouraged to participate by filling out a similar student survey. As part of this research, Runnymede Trust and Freelands Foundation would like to understand how pupils themselves feel about their art education. The data collected from this will be completely anonymous and support the next phase of research.

All of data submitted will be analysed to support in building resources for teachers and will be launched in 2023.

Surveys close mid-February 2023. Visit the official website here for more information.
