Teachers and Educators Events
Each term we offer the chance for teaching staff, youth and community workers and museum educators to meet the Learning team and develop new ways of approaching the history of the Foundling Hospital and its work with artists.
We offer a range of downloadable resources which complement group visits, exploring different aspects of the Foundling Hospital story. Special resources accompany our regular programme of exhibitions and displays. For more information contact Elizabeth Lee on 020 7841 3595 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
We work extensively with contemporary artists, writers and musicians, commissioning new work, hosting residencies, staging exhibitions and initiating projects. Our aim is to bring community groups and practicing artists of all kinds together, facilitating their engagement with the story of the Foundling Hospital through the process of making and exploring art in its broadest sense.
The Foundling Community Choir is a sociable adult choir led by an inspirational choir master who leads an extensive and varied repertoire which includes classical, jazz, madrigals and pop
