Oliver Briggs FRSA

I am a secondary art and photography teacher, RSA Fellow and I am currently studying the MA Artist Teacher & Contemporary Practice at Goldsmiths University. My practice and research explores the possibilities of learning through art, in particular the generative nature of collaborative learning in relation to making new social connections. How we make visible the relational experience of human interaction and forge new meaningful bonds as well and facilitating agency through the process of making, is my primary interest. This is underpinned by a broad analysis of the purpose of art education and the role of art in society.

I work across creative disciplines including visual arts, video, music and photography. I have led workshops for teachers and young people as well as initiating various projects here and overseas.

I graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2005 where I studied Drawing and Fine Art. Since then I have trained as an art teacher at Goldsmiths University and I currently teach Art and Photography at a secondary school in Kent.
