The Tweed Regional Gallery offers a range of exciting student and educator focused learning opportunities via a diverse program of exhibitions, programs, resources and events that cater for pre-preparatory to tertiary levels.

The Gallery aims to support teachers' professional development through workshops, talks and learning opportunities. Exhibition preview events are held twice a year. These events offer a chance for teachers to get together in an informal and relaxed way, collect current Education Resources and preview selected exhibitions. The Gallery can provide documentation of teacher learning that supports the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

Art AfterSchool - Teacher Professional Development



Regional educators can join from home or school for an online adaptation of the Teacher Professional Development Program 'Namuru: Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Practice for Teachers' presented by Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia.

Participants will gain insight into the work of artist John Mawurndjul, while developing confidence in delivering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander content in the classroom.

This online workshop will be facilitated by educators from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia. Presented in conjunction with the display of 'John Mawurndjul: I am the old and the new' at Tweed Regional Gallery.

Places are strictly limited. Professional Development documentation will be provided following the workshop.
