    Who are we?

    North East Art Teacher/Educator Network (NEATEN)

    Established in 2007 as a network for art educators, and now in our 14th year here in the north east of England. We have expanded outside of our region this year in response to the global  pandemic, and we believe firmly in the wisdom of crowds.

    We advocate for our subject and its rightful place in the curriculum, we showcase and share good practice in all phases of education and we connect, collaborate and create together. Follow us on Twitter/Insta @NEATENart

    We believe the Arts are special in our region: NEAAT was created in 2019 to meet the need for Art teachers in East Anglia to be part of an empowering and enriching network of fellow educators that can support each other and help develop an exciting provision for our students.

    Supported by the Norwich University of Art we work together to connect, inspire and empower Art teachers from all aspects of the profession, creating a network with other providers to ensure the longevity of the subject beyond school and qualifications; enabling the practitioners of the future. Art is fun and everyone should be doing it!

    We are quite new but have a fantastic range of members and are growing every year. Over the past year we have expanded into provided online workshops that have expanded into the UK and abroad. Follow us on twitter @NEAAT3
