Exhibitions, Industry news

Belfast Exposed is presenting How We Learn, a major new group exhibition that seeks to open up and explore the contexts in which children learn from 3 April to 25 May. The exhibition addresses how photography has been used to investigate both the physical and psychological spaces in which learning takes place. 

New work is being exhibited produced in a collaborative project over the last six months between artist Marysa Dowling and three partner schools in Northern Ireland: St Malachy's Primary School, Meadowbridge Primary School and Sacred Heart Primary School. The exhibition will include a major talks programme, a symposium and will support an extensive programme of school tours and workshops.

During How We Learn Belfast Exposed will launch its new BX Schools 2014-15 programme. This programme has been made in consultation with teachers and pupils over the past year. For more information on what is an offer to schools please click here
