Israel75: Building Artistic Connections offers an opportunity for your students to explore, connect and reflect upon the cultural, artistic and historical narratives of Israel. Having reviewed the objects in the catalogue, you will need to guide your class on their creative, open-ended journey. The final compositions can be; pieces of visual art, plays, fashion shows, films, animations, sculptures or installations. The options are truly endless and this project should offer an opportunity to showcase creativity, originality and imagination.
Our creative model will guide your students from discovery and enquiry to analysis and then finally to innovation.
Final submissions need to be completed and sent to us by 28th February 2023.
* Submission projects should be up to 50 cm long x 20cm wide, and 20cm high. Please do not include expensive technologies or heavy materials.
Film/video/digital clips: Any art display that is a film/digital clip must include subtitles and be sent to us as a digital file. If chosen, it will be played on a screen in the museum exhibit.
How do I get full access to the website resources and online catalogueTo access the website you will need to create a login for yourself on either this page or the page called " The Catalogue." We will then verify your login enabling you full access to all the areas. If however you are new to the project, please be in touch to organise an INSET or training session so that we can issue you with the resources and website access member login
Can I choose an object of my own?Unfortunately not. Our partner museums have worked hard to select a range of interesting items to explore. If you would like more information about them, you can contact our museum contacts directly and they will endeavour to help you.
We have selected our objects but don't know what to do now.We have provided our exploration model to help guide you but if you need further assistance, please get in touch and we can talk you through some options and lesson ideas. The Exploration Model lessons are only available with a personal login.
How much time should I spend on each stage of the project?There are no set guidelines for the project but since the final composition will be going on display, we would hope that teachers dedicate sufficient time to produce a museum worthy exhibitable piece. We would also recommend that time is spent analysing and exploring the inital object. The deeper the understanding of the items, the greater the ability to reflect on it.
When do I need to have everything ready?The final submission date is 28th February 2023
Where and when will the exhibitions be?There will be two live exhibitions: one in London and one in Israel. The locations are still to be confirmed but the London one will open around Yom Ha'atzmaut and the one in Israel in Summer 2023. Every participating school will have pieces on display at both shows. There will also be an online virtual gallery of every final composition.
