The National Gallery’s Community Engagement and Outreach service expands our learning programmes beyond the walls of the Gallery. Through visual art and collection focused projects and events we reach into the community and work with groups who might not otherwise access the Gallery’s public programmes. The service operates on a nationwide basis and in a diverse range of venues, from arts centres and local museums to libraries, prisons, hospitals and festivals.
Through adopting a flexible approach, the service accommodates the specific needs of each group, be they physical, intellectual or social. Our uniquely tailored events are led by our team of artists and art historians, all of whom have many years’ experience working with children and adults with diverse interests and needs.
