University Challenge Smiles


Art Exchange provides exciting opportunities for young people and teachers to engage with art and the ground breaking research of academics here at the University of Essex. Each term we focus on different areas of study that can be easily understood and enjoyed by children of all ages. Our expert Arts Education Officer, Kate Beckwith, creates insightful workshops that can be tailored to each school’s needs and priorities, while delivering the National Curriculum. We promise they will be great fun too!

Coming onto the University of Essex’s Colchester campus is a fantastic opportunity to give young people a taste of student life and raise aspirations. We are always happy to include a campus tour, treasure hunt or quiz – all specially designed with young visitors in mind.
