“The Unilever Series: turbinegeneration is an online educational partnership linking schools and galleries internationally. The turbinegeneration project is produced by Tate and sponsored by Unilever. The Unilever Series: turbinegeneration is a unique programme that brings together schools, galleries and artists from around the world. Schools and colleges can register online and choose an international partner. This partnership allows them to explore their cultures and exchange their artwork online.” (Source: http://turbinegeneration.tate.org.uk/)
This partnership is a really exciting and innovative way of connecting artists with students and fostering a relationship between schools and galleries. This type of connection allow students to really see their own potential and, perhaps, aspire to becoming the next great contemporary artist.
