In-Gallery workshops 2019

Our in-gallery workshops are designed and delivered by artists and curators to share the themes of the exhibitions. Where possible we connect with Faculties, and academics within UTS to exemplify the cross disciplinary nature of contemporary art practice and teaching and learning within UTS.

We choose two exhibitions per year to create workshops that are informative, hands on and engaging. However if another exhibition in our program interests you or you have a specific request we encourage you to contact UTS ART Learning and Projects to discuss.
