school group visits to autograph's gallery

For more than 30 years we have worked with schools and teachers, using photography to explore and express issues of identity, representation, social justice and human rights. We welcome pupils of all ages to our gallery.

Our current exhibition is Care | Contagion | Community — Self and Other, and is on view until 12 February 2022. We are not currently able to give exhibition tours led by Autograph staff, however we welcome self-directed school visits. If you would like to bring your class to see the exhibition, please fill in our short group booking request form.

We're here to help! Email info@autograph-abp.co.uk if you have any questions.
