Serpentine Education and Projects redefines the role of the arts during periods of transition and social change. We connect communities, artists and activists to generate responses to pressing social issues.

How do we care in times of austerity?

How can we survive an increasingly competitive schools system?

How do we navigate an increasingly surveilled and gentrified city?
