To accompany each exhibition, the gallery hosts evening and weekend discussion events, ‘in-conversations’ or ‘walk and talks’ with the exhibiting artists and guest speakers. These are free to attend and are a great way to learn more about the artworks in the gallery, how they have been made and the wider context of the work.
