  • How can we further understand where issues of class affect the practice of gallery and visual art education?
  • What are the leading examples of inclusive and intersectional arts education practice that relate to class?
  • How has academic theory influenced sector practices and engagement methods?
  • What has been the explicit relationship between class, inequality and this year’s Black Lives Movement?
