Morley Mentions

We're always working to get our name out there! Here are some of our recent media appearances.

Elizabeth Still 2

We were delighted to see that txtʃərz, the new installation by Turner Prize winning artist Elizabeth Price that opened in Morley Gallery as part of the Planets Festival, was picked up by the Evening Standard as one of Five Things You Need To See at Art Night! txtʃərz also caught the attention of art magazine Apollo, who published a review of the piece online. The installation is on display until Saturday 14 July, so be sure to go and check it out if you haven't already!

Outside the Festival, the exciting news that we will soon be offering the Level 4 Certificate for Music Educators in partnership with Sound Connections and the Musicians' Union also hit the press, being picked up by Music Teacher magazine. Find out more about this new course on our news story here.

Staying with Music, on 1 June The Strad Magazine published an article about the 2017-18 Monteverdi Apprentices Programme, which saw the Chiaroscuro Quartet and eight emerging string musicians take up residence in The Holst Room for a three-day workshop last November.

Meanwhile, on 17 June the Sunday Times published a retrospective about the life of Edward Bawden, and while it mainly tied in to the Bawden exhibition currently open at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, it also mentioned our own exhibition of Bawden's work, Standing a Little Outside Life, which ran in the Morley Gallery last month.

On the wider subject of education in general, our Leading Learning for Life conference in May caught the attention of tes, who picked up on a presentation by Mark Ravenhall, a senior research fellow at the Learning and Work Institute who was speaking at the conference. Discussing the upcoming devolution of the adult education budget across six metro-mayor areas across England, he said: “There is going to be more thought about the cross-cutting role of adult education. Devolution gives us the opportunity to link strategies." Read the full article here.

And finally, on 12 June the Metro ran a piece entitled "Learn the Change Your Life", picking out some of our courses that can help people looking to learn new skills and improve their career prospects.
