At Turner Contemporary, we believe in the power of the arts to inspire change.

The arts challenge our thinking and help us to see the world differently enabling opportunities for discussion, debate, learning and listening. We are committed to supporting creativity, strengthening community, safeguarding the environment and championing social justice and inclusion.

The Learning Team at the gallery includes all of our front-of house colleagues.

 As a team we work with colleges, community groups, families, independent adults and schools to develop and deepen skills, ideas and understanding. Our philosophical approach to learning is embedded across the gallery and through our work in the community, and is well known for pioneering co-curation and child leadership projects.

From these pages you can access resources, book a group visit or hear more about current and past projects.
