Are you a teacher looking for an exciting project which can stimulate your students to develop and share their own opinions on art? We have the project you are looking for - it’s called ARTiculation

The British Council is collaborating with Roche Court Educational Trust to promote their innovative ARTiculation project across Italy. This is an international competition for young people which encourages them to express, in English, the reasons why they particularly love a work of art or architecture.

Participating schools can sign up to receive specially-prepared materials in English on contemporary art and presentation skills to be used in the classroom or for self-study. 

In addition to this, for academic year 2017/18 we are collaborating with the Ufficio Scolastico of Lombardy to invite secondary schools in the Lombardy region to participate in a competition (for pupils aged 16+) focusing on the visual arts called ARTiculation Prize Italia.  More details will be provided on this opportunity through the Ufficio Scolastico Lombardia in due course.

The final of the ARTiculation Prize Italia 2018 competition will be held in March 2018 in Lombardy.

In order to receive the materials for ARTiculation, please sign up to register your interest - see the details below.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Here are three reasons to sign up to the project:

1. It introduces an international experience to the classroom based on contemporary art;

2. It encourages the pupils to share their opinions on something they are passionate about - all the while improving their English!

3. It’s a student-centred project – they take the lead and decide what to talk about

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?

Registration opens from 18th September. 

Click to complete the online registration form.

In registering you express your interest in carrying out some ARTiculation activity in your school. You will see a link to the teaching support materials which have been created with secondary school audiences in mind, but which could be adapted for other classes.

Why is there not a national competition?

This year we are working with the Ufficio Scolastico of Lombardy to promote the project and will run a regional level competition with schools in Lombardy only.  This is to ensure we can offer sufficient support for the participating schools.  For schools outside of Lombardy, when you register your interest in the project, you can indicate whether in future years you would like to participate in a regional or national final, so we can see where there is demand.
