With a background in the arts and education, Tara is currently the Learning Programs Manager at the Heide Museum Of Modern Art. Ordinarily, Heide Learning delivers exhibition and sculpture park tours, workshops and professional learning programs to primary-tertiary sectors. We have two funded programs; one for schools in low SES areas, and another for a cluster of schools including the Austin Hospital and Berry St Schools, specifically for students at risk of disengaging with education. The current crisis has highlighted inequities in education and access to the arts and, having moved rapidly to online platforms, we now need to rethink and redesign for the future.
