What is ANDtogether?
ANDtogether is a site designed for London teachers to connect more effectively with information and organisations from London's thriving arts and cultural sector.
Why the need for ANDtogether?
- Schools find it hard to access and explore the breadth of information available about London’s cultural offer
- Google is too big for time-stretched teachers, who are looking for opportunities or partners, but might not be sure what they're looking for to begin with
- ANDtogether aims to give a breadth of information, based on provision London-wide, not just in local areas - although all search results display distance from your postcode location. We urge teachers to look for the more suitable, interesting partners, rather than the closest... and likewise, organisations to go out to schools, particularly in Outer London boroughs
- Organisations often market a set offer to a relatively small pool of schools, based on those they have worked with or had contact with before - this perpetuates a 'super-served' system where the same organisations talk to, and end up working with the same schools.
- ANDtogether aims to improve communication from both sides, and help open up new opportunities for all young people in London schools
