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.

From a curriculum point of view the project was fabulous. It allowed children to take part in a wide range of activities, directing, discussing and positively editing and evaluating their work and cooperating with different groups within the class.Teacher, Meadow Bridge Primary School

The programme is a fantastic resource for teachers, allowing them to cover multiple areas of learning and curriculum through a completely new medium.Teacher, St Malachy’s Primary School
I learned completed new aspects of photography, which I found particularly interesting as I am unable to study this in school.
Things I enjoyed learning about most were: different angles and shots, how photographers can illustrate fascinating stories within photos.
I have never had the opportunity to study photography before, so I enjoyed the whole experience as everything I learnt was completely new to me!
I have learned a variety of new ways to interpret artworks in terms of photography.
I loved the fact that we had a chance to explore artists and understand the deeper meaning of their work.
I enjoyed meeting new people, looking at art and listening to talks with artists.
Enjoyed meeting new people, learning about new photographers and artists and expanding my view on art.
