In true Bauhaus style, University of the Arts London (UAL) invites the public to join us in a series of lively debates, hands-on workshops, parties, exhibitions, screenings and talks by internationally renowned voices and emerging practitioners as it celebrates the centenary of the pioneering art and design school, The Bauhaus.

The OurHaus festival is the culmination of a year-long investigation by UAL staff and students from Camberwell College of Arts and Central Saint Martins into the theories and methods of the Bauhaus, widely regarded as the one of the most influential experiments in art, architecture and design.

The Bauhaus movement was a short-lived rebellious and aspirational movement that in many ways laid the foundations for our modern era, elevating the role of design practise to a way of thinking.  Through a series of carefully curated events, visitors to the festival will discover how design thinking can address the fundamental needs of society and the critical issues of our time.

OurHaus will reimagine the Bauhaus’s legacy and explore its meaning for contemporary artists, educators and students.  The festival will not historicise or take a backward look at the Bauhaus legacy but instead take its cue from the original Bauhaus community and facilitate an investigation of the future, powered by experimentation.  We are not just looking back 100 years, but learning from the productions, methodologies, pedagogy and ideas of the time to make new work that is relevant to our times.

Professor Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins and Pro Vice-Chancellor of University of the Arts London:
“Given that some of the founding tenets of the Bauhaus arose out of Lethaby’s Central School, it is apposite that UAL revisits the practices and ethos of the Bauhaus. OurHaus gives us all the opportunity to review what from the original might still be relevant and what needs to be realigned to engage with our changed and changing times.”

Susan Orr, Professor of Creative Pedagogy:
“One hundred years on from the Bauhaus, the art school studio, whether virtual or physical, is still at the centre of creative education and there’s been much debate about what elements of the pedagogy are relevant today. That debate is certain to continue but I am sure that visitors to OurHaus will leave convinced that the creative, educative and emancipatory potential of the 21st century art school is as exciting and as full of promise as it was in the Bauhaus. Everything changes, nothing changes.”

Dr Daniel Sturgis, Professor in Research, Camberwell College of Arts, UAL 
“The opportunity to re-think aspects of the Bauhaus’s pedagogy – and how they can be adapted, questioned or interpreted now – is proving hugely exciting for students and staff at the college. We are interested in thinking about how the art school relates to its social and political context and how visual literacy is learnt and developed, both ideas which were central to the Bauhaus and its trans-national legacies. Both strands of our enquiry have led us to form new partnerships with different museums, foundations and galleries.”

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
