Aspex worked with local primary schools Arundel Court Infant School, Gomer Junior School and St Georges Beneficial School. Workshops were led by artists and took their cues from aspex exhibitions.
Aspex also led a mentoring project for education and participatory work with children aged 6-11 as part of this learning set. Members of aspex’s education team travelled to Netwerk and la malterie where members of their education departments gave a presentation of the work they had been doing as part of the LCP project. Aspex also shared its work through a screening of the short film ‘Pop the Question’ which it had created as part of the LCP project, with children from St Georges Beneficial School. The objectives of the mentoring programme were to provide an opportunity to discuss lessons learnt, problems encountered and solutions found across the partnership. Sharing best practice cases provided an opportunity for partners to re-fresh their personal approaches to the work and to learn from each other.
