Event

Family Takeover

22 April - 24 June 2018


Sundays, 2.00 - 4.30pm 

Every Sunday throughout the exhibitions, families can drop-in to the Drawing Studio and galleries to take part in free, creative and fun activities led by our Family Artist-in-Residence Oriana Fox. Taking inspiration from the exhibitions Sadie Benning: Sleep Rock and Ian White: Any frame is a thrown voice, families are invited to take part in a series of activities drawing on key themes from the exhibition, including ideas of transformation, framing and identity. Join us for sessions where we will work with a range of materials in order to make sets and props, stage performances and create new alter-egos.

Family Takeover is suitable for children of all ages and materials are provided free of charge, but donations are invited.

The space is wheelchair accessible. Please contact us if you have any additional access requirements.
