Organised by The Photographers’ Gallery Seeing More Things is a visual literacy programme involving, and learning from, young people studying at four secondary schools in Barnet, Brent, Camden and Westminster over a three-year period beginning in September 2013.
Teachers in each school are paired with an artist or a writer to plan and deliver a series of sessions over one term. Photographers Helen Cammock, Liz Orton, Yemisi Blake and writer Claire Collison are working with teachers at Hendon School, Parliament Hill School, Queen’s Park Community School and Westminster Academy.
During a series of photography-focused gallery visits and in-class work, pupils will work with a photographer or writer to measure, develop and extend their visual literacy skills – stretching their ability to read, understand and analyse images.
The programme stems from a series of initiatives The Photographers’ Gallery has developed through partnerships with teachers and schools. It also links with the Touchstone programme at the Gallery, inviting audiences to respond to an individual photograph on display through writing and drawing.
