The gallery at home
During the Coronavirus restrictions we’re offering a range of activities and ideas to bring creativity, health and hope into your home.
We can’t be in the gallery at the moment, so we’ve moved these discussions online.
30 minutes, 2 art works, your opinions and ideas
A gallery based session that has been transferred online and delivered via Zoom every Wednesday lunchtime. Staff and volunteers lead a discussion focussing on two art works, it’s an opportunity to get together for a chat about art and share opinions and ideas.
Third Tuesday of every month, 11am–12.30pm and first Wednesday of every month, 6.30pm–8pm
Experience art and discuss a philosophical question
Normally running at the gallery, Philosophy Cafe is now a conversation based session lead by staff and volunteers via Zoom. It is an opportunity to experience art and discuss a philosophical question, creating a space for people to talk and think together.
Being confined to our homes, whether with family or on our own can be a challenge to our wellbeing. To help you stay well and maintain good mental health our Health and Wellbeing Manager Louise Thompson is offering a weekly mindfulness session.
Family Manager Katy McCall and Artist Naomi Kendrick with ideas for creative activities to do with your family.
Making Conversation is an open access group which – before the Covid 19 restrictions – encouraged members of the public to visit the gallery, look at art, explore ideas and make something in response. Just because our doors are closed, it doesn’t mean Making Conversation can’t happen, and the artists who run the group have moved the session online.
