Schools

At Belfast Exposed, we put learning at the heart of the organisation. We are aware that the younger generation and those interested in being educated, will continue to drive, change and challenge photography for years to come. Therefore, we will harness their energy, arouse their curiosity and welcome the contribution they will make.

We offer free bespoke gallery tours and workshops for schools and colleges from Primary schools through to Degree level. Providing 1-hour sessions that include in-depth guided tours of our exhibitions, a tour of our facilities and a talk about the history of Belfast Exposed.

Annually, Belfast Exposed run Summer Scheme and Young Futures programmes aimed at providing teenagers with skills and knowledge in photography. These programmes aim to equip the young people with skills that bridge the gap between traditional arts education in schools, therefore assisting prospective students for third level education. The programmes consist of a series of practical workshops, artist talks, discussions, exhibition tours and gallery visits.
