This chapter focuses on the pop-up art schools (PUAS) at the University of Huddersfield, resulted from an eclectic collection of temporary and alternative cultural, social and retail events at a particular time. It describes the PUAS and the way they enabled the School of Education to engage with the wider public, with a music festival, an art gallery and a community school. The chapter considers the university's position with respect to the arts in broad terms and tries to situate the PUAS within the literature relating to arts and professional education and the arts and community education. It discusses the feedback from the art schools and reflects on the impact they clearly had on the professional training of teachers in the university. The art schools gave the trainees the chance to see at first hand the benefits of community outreach work.
