CHEAD provides a voice for and on behalf of higher education art and design in the UK four nations advancing knowledge and understanding in the sector and promoting the sector’s interests to others. We carry out research, scan the policy horizon, brief our members, facilitate networking opportunities for senior staff from within and outside HE as well as helping to shape higher education art and design policy on our members’ behalf. We facilitate specialist internal networks supporting art and design research leaders, Subject Associations, and HE gallery leaders.

Through this session, we are aiming to support arts educators to advocate, influence and gain wider recognition for their work amongst internal and external audiences.
As part of its specialist professional networks, CHEAD supports a Gallery Alliance to provide a professional network for colleagues with Galleries and Collection in the CHEAD membership. The Alliance promotes knowledge and understanding throughout and beyond the gallery network and also promotes and shares best practice between members and associated gallery networks.
