Art & Action: Making Change in Victorian Britain
Launching 17 November 2020
Can art change the future? In the nineteenth century, Victorian artists, viewers, and critics increasingly began to believe it could. Discover the Victorian roots of art activism in this digital exhibition, ahead of visiting in person following lockdown.
Bringing together inspiring artists, historians and activists, this season's talks programme explores contemporary art and activism in response to the exhibition Art & Action: Making Change in Victorian Britain.
From History of Art to drawing and painting - discover this season's online courses, which enable you to learn new skills and expand your knowledge from the comfort of your home. All our courses take place over Zoom, providing you with the opportunity to ask questions and engage with your course leader.
Ready to get creative with all the family? Be inspired by our online courses and seasonal activities for you to try at home! All our printable resources, activity packs and video tutorials have been designed for you by our Make Space artists.
