About The Vision and Legacy of Sir Alec Clegg

Celebrating the life and work of Sir Alec Clegg, this is the third major exhibition exploring Clegg's legacy that has been held by the National Arts Education Archive (NAEA) since its inception in 1985.

It supports the publication of Education Through the Arts for Well-being and Community edited by Catherine Burke, Peter Cunningham, and Lottie Hoare, published by Routledge in their Progressive Education series. The book examines Sir Alec Clegg’s distinctive contribution to educational reform. Revisiting the significance of Clegg’s principles for education in the 21st century, the book investigates the impact of his innovative approach to education and his advocacy of an arts-based curriculum to promote physical and mental health.

Visits to view the exhibition can be arranged on request. Access to NAEA is available by appointment on Tuesdays each week. Email Anna.Bowman@ysp.org.uk or phone 01924 830690.

The NAEA is a short walk from the Learning Centre at YSP. The Information Desk in the main Visitor Centre can provide directions. Please note, major construction is underway around the area surrounding the Archive.
