Bridging the Digital Divide Transcript

What role can art and creativity play in times of confinement and physical distancing? Here Whitechapel Gallery’s Curator of Schools and Teachers Alex Kais, speaks with Chloe Randall (Programme Manager, A New Direction) and Kerri Sellens (Assistant Headteacher and Curriculum Lead at Lansbury Lawrence Primary School). They discuss how the Whitechapel Gallery has adapted to continue working with schools, how working with the Gallery has impacted schools before Covid, and how schools are adapting to continue this learning process throughout the pandemic.
