The Sainsbury Centre was one of the first galleries in the UK to develop an artist-led learning programme, recognising the value of creative, enquiry-based approaches to learning in the gallery. We continue to use this collaborative approach, working directly with artists on practical workshops, interpretive resources, and research projects. In turn, we are committed to providing opportunities for professional artists from the region to engage critically and creatively with the Sainsbury Centre in order to support and inspire them in their practice.
