Learning Gallery

Located on the top floor of the Saatchi Gallery, we are proud to exhibit education and community groups' artworks to the public. Alongside our onsite gallery we are launching an online Learning Gallery to exhibit artwork created by education and community groups' in response to the Gallery's exhibitions.

For each major exhibition there are opportunities to engage with creative projects and workshops whether that be in-gallery, virtually, in the classroom or at home. View our School and Communities webpages for more information on our online and in-gallery opportunities.

Title: Creating with Dementia Workshop for Dementia Action Week 2021
Project: To mark National Dementia Action Week 2021, Saatchi Gallery Learning teamed up with our friends at Creating with Dementia for a photography project to enhance dementia awareness and celebrate those living with dementia, both directly and in supporting roles. Inspired by the work of artist JR, we invited a group of people with dementia, carers and allies to visit the gallery. Referencing JR’s practice of using portrait photography and oral testimonies to create awareness of communities and issues around the world, participants were photographed by project artist Kit Oates and we conducted short interviews to find out a little about each of them.
