Ben Thomas awarded Teaching Prize
Barbara Morris Prize for Learning Support
This year's Barbara Morris Prize for Learning Support was presented to Dr Ben Thomas (History and Philosophy of Art, School of Arts and Curator, Studio 3 Gallery) for his leadership of the Gallery, bringing ‘ the best possible art work to Canterbury campus and creating a launch pad for volunteers who want to work in the art world’.
Ben Thomas said: 'the award was based on a series of case studies of volunteers who had successfully engaged with different aspects of running the gallery from curating a show to education and outreach. It reflects the strength of commitment of the volunteers at Studio 3 and the high quality of work they achieve'.
