Outreach and Public Engagement

The Art Collection offers a large variety of ways in which you can learn about and engage with our collections. In a vibrant and exciting programme of events, tours, lectures, workshops, and courses, throughout the year, we reach a wide audience including staff, students, secondary schools, community groups and the general public. 

Each year our exhibitions and events are directly inspired by a theme, supporting the research and learning objectives of the University. See details of what is happening this year.
