Anna Cutler, Head of Learning, Tate Modern

 

Over the last 20 years Anna has worked across education and cultural settings at a local, national and international level. Her purpose has been to explore and improve the impact of cultural interventions on a variety of different learning environments. Her work has ranged from Lecturer (University of North London) to Festival Director (Young at Art, Northern Ireland) and she has worked across disciplines with several national organisations. In 2002 she became the director of Creative Partnerships Kent and was, through this role, heavily involved with international research into learning within the visual arts. Anna joined Tate as Head of Learning at Tate Modern, London, in 2006 and was appointed as Tate's first Director of Learning in September 2009. She will take up this post in January 2010.

 

Dr. Michael Murawski, Director of School Services, Saint Louis Art Museum

 

Since 2006, Murawski has served as education and public programs coordinator at Washington University's Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. Within that role he was responsible for the development and implementation of academic and public educational programs for the Kemper Art Museum.

 

As director of School Services, Murawski will oversee the creation of thematic and self-guided programs for K-12 students to facilitate museum visits and support school curricula. He will also oversee the design and creation of materials and programs that support specific skills relating to state and local academic standards. Lastly, Murawski will focus on establishing a new training program for teachers focusing on in-depth looking, visual literacy, and critical thinking skills.

This spring Murawski will chair a session on museum teaching strategies at the annual meeting of the American Association of Museums and will present on real-time learning programs at the Missouri Art Education Association conference.

 

Murawski, a St. Louis native, earned his BA in art history and history from Truman State University in 2000. He then went on to American University in Washington, D.C., where he earned his MA and PhD in Education, in 2002 and 2006, respectively.
