￼Frieze Education has expanded in 2006 thanks to the generous sponsorship of Deutsche Bank.
Frieze Education will encompass a four day programme of events for families and young people. Two workshops, programmed by Camden Arts Centre, will take place each day of the fair in the new Deutsche Bank Education Space.
The Family Workshops, led by artists Michelle Williams and Emma Smith, will provide fun, practical sessions for children aged between 5-12 years working with their parents or guardians.
The Schools’ Workshops will be stimulating and collaborative sessions giving young people a taste of the art school dynamic. The workshops will introduce students from Camden and Westminster to the thought processes and practical experimentation of professional artists. Led by Alice Walton and Alex Schady, the sessions will engage with Frieze Projects’ artists, against the backdrop of the international contemporary art fair. The aim is to give those taking part an insightful experience and encourage creativity and critical thinking.
Anyone visiting the fair with children can pick up a free Frieze Education Activity Guide. All programmes are created by artists to engage young visitors with their families on an imaginative journey through Frieze Art Fair. The Frieze Education Activity Guides are most suited to children up to the age of 12 years.
Pierre de Weck, Member of the Group Executive Committee of Deutsche Bank commented “We are delighted to be extending our sponsorship of the Frieze Art Fair with the arrival of the new Deutsche Bank Education Space. Using the arts to underpin and enrich education is a central element of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities in London.
“Building on our successful relationship with Frieze to include a programme which leverages their expertise and uniqueness whilst simultaneously complimenting our own CSR strategy makes the Education Space very exciting. The Education Space is not only somewhere to inspire creativity and encourage curiosity in young people but also to make the Fair even more accessible to new audiences.”
