Supported Initiatives

Our reputation is partly built on our huge range of initiatives designed to help people of all ages engage with, and develop their skills in, contemporary art.

From children’s workshops to structured awards, there’s something to suit everyone. Our programme of art exhibitions, films, events and workshops are ever-changing to provide art lovers, students, children and families with a constant source of fun, culture and contemporary visual art.
