Communities

JR: Chronicles learning programme is kindly supported by Art Explora

Saatchi Gallery Learning works alongside local community organisations to engage diverse audiences with contemporary art and culture through participatory projects, workshops, and exhibitions. For each major exhibition we offer digital resources to support your visit and provide information on the exhibition, artists, and artworks. We also offer in-gallery tours and workshops (subject to availability and in-line with COVID restrictions), extended projects, and the opportunity to exhibit your artwork in our onsite and online Learning Gallery.

If you are interested in your community organisation being involved in the Saatchi Gallery Learning programme please get in touch with the Learning team.

To book a one-off visit for your community group please download a group booking form and email it to the Learning team.
