People and Places Project: Offsite Collections


During our redevelopment, our Learning team have been working with community groups and audiences to select their favourite art works from the Gallery’s collection to display throughout the city.

The People and Places’ project will provide our audiences with an opportunity to enjoy working with the Gallery collection and will involve producing images for display around the gallery site on Alexandra Road, throughout the city and in other community venues.
