The SLG’s award-winning education programmes offer exceptional opportunities for visitors of all ages and levels of interest and to become more actively involved in contemporary art through a broad range of activities and events. Take part in artist-led projects inspired by our shows, attend artist talks, enjoy drop-in family workshops or join one of our longer-term programmes. You can do this independently, through your school or community group, or in your free time if you are aged 13-19 years old and like the sound of The Art Assassins.

Current major projects include The Shop of Possibilities, a space for play for children and families from five neighbouring housing estates; REcreativeuk.com, an online community and resource for 16-25 year olds; and Supersmashersa creative arts and play project for up to 200 looked-after children aged 7-12 living in Southwark. Some of our projects are united by SLG Local, which builds on the success of Making Play, a three-year play-based family programme on neighbouring Sceaux Gardens.  

The development of these and other projects have established the SLG’s reputation for innovative programming. Making Play won the inaugural £10,000 Clore Award for Museum Learning and the Double Take project obtained an Arts & Business Young People Award.

In addition to these projects, the SLG's on-going schools’ programme attracts up to 700 student visitors to each of our exhibitions, and a regular Sunday Spot family workshop welcomes children and families to explore contemporary art.

The Art Assassins are a group of 13-19 year olds who meet every Thursday to engage, create and collaborate with artists, designers, filmmakers, performers and curators.

For anyone over 16 years of age, there is also Play Local TopicsThis forum is open to residents who live on the five housing estates surrounding the SLG: Sceaux Gardens, Southampton Way, Elmington, Pelican and Wyndham and Comber. The group hosts discussions with artists, play workers and other specialists to explore ideas for SLG Local projects on these estates.  

To discuss our programmes or an idea for a new project, please contact Frances Williams, Head of Education.

Many of our education projects are part of SLG Local, which is sponsored by Bloomberg and also funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
