New! Art Galleries are Places for Social Work
An online guide to using galleries and museums for social care professionals by Tate and New Town Culture, 2021

Along with our partner Tate, we have inroduced a new guide for social care professionals to encourage them to think of galleries and museums as spaces for social work. Visit here for a guide to using galleries and museums in social work.

Tate is a family of free art galleries with a range of artworks on display. Tate aim to provide a welcoming and safe space for social care, and encourage people to play and learn about themselves through art. Like social work, we believe art helps us explore different feelings and viewpoints, and connect with others.

Visiting new spaces can be valuable for young people and adults. New Town Culture and Tate believe that galleries and museums can encourage a new dynamic between social workers and their clients. Exploring the galleries can strengthen relationships and be an opportunity to discover the space, art and stories within the art, together. This new resource was created by artist Hannah Kemp-Welch for New Town Culture and Tate.
