As part of our charity mission, Saatchi Gallery Learning works alongside local community organisations across London to engage diverse audiences with contemporary art and culture through participatory projects, workshops, and exhibitions. Groups also have the opportunity to exhibit their workshop artworks in our onsite Learning Gallery.
For each major exhibition, we offer online resources to support self-guided community group visits. We also offer free guided tours, exhibition workshops, and extended projects.
All community group tours and/or workshops visits need to be booked in advance.
To book please fill out the group booking form here.
If you would like to discuss your community group visit over the phone, please call: +44 (0)20 7811 3087. Our Learning department phone line is moderated intermittently Monday-Friday 10AM - 5PM.

Saatchi Gallery proudly offers offsite workshops run by our experienced art educators. We explore contemporary art through playful accessible activities and draw inspiration from art pieces that have been displayed at Saatchi Gallery by artists from all over the world. Participants get the chance to make their own artwork inspired by our recent and ongoing exhibitions.
