2014    What's the Value of Art?  I organised a national project where art teachers made artwork in response to this question 'What is the value of art?' in order that they could be displayed in classrooms across the country.  The images were exhibited alongside Bob and Roberta Smith's work as part of Deptford X on Creekside.  They are now available as part of NSEAD resources.  I also ran a workshop for the Art PGCE students at Goldsmiths in association with Deptford X.
