New Life

With the start of spring, we’re bringing you a new and hopeful theme: New Life for the Gallery Learning Programme from April to June. During the next few months our online and in-person activities will focus on exploring this idea of re-emerging, starting out, and blossoming. We’ll also use this theme to give our artists and you some time to think about life that continues after death and grief.
