Our schools program makes the study of the history of emotions accessible to students and teachers, and relevant to modern lives and contemporary issues. We aim to explore emotional understandings and the relationship between emotions and expressions, through history, literature, and the creative and performing arts. Working with partners, including leading museums and galleries, we provide students with the opportunity to build their understanding of emotions in different times, places and cultures.

Please note: As of 2019 we no longer runs educational activities for primary and secondary schools.
