EXHIBITIONS AND GROUP VISITS
NAE's exhibitions provide a rich creative learning opportunity for young people of all ages and abilities and we welcome visits from groups at all times.
NAE can offer support to teachers planning a visit to NAE; from arranging the practicalities, to providing detailed information about the exhibition and supporting teachers to identify key themes and learning opportunities. Groups are welcome to visit in a self-led capacity and NAE can provide gallery tours and introductions to the shows. Through consultation with NAE it may also be possible to arrange practical workshops and other creative opportunities to enhance your visit (please note visits to NAE are free but special workshops are likely to require a financial contribution).
The exhibitions programme at New Art Exchange is designed to extend the mission statement of the organisation: to stimulate new perspectives on the value of diversity in art and society. Key themes and subjects our exhibitions often address include: citizenship, identity and heritage, as well as cultural diversity in different contexts.
To book a visit to NAE or to have a general conversation about how you and your group can connect with NAE please contact Sooree Pillay, Creative Producer: Young People and Families, Sooree@nae.org.uk, 0115 924 8630.
You can also download an information pack here containing details about future exhibitions.

New Art Exchange is interested in the development of arts skills within the school environment. Part of this development is a programme run by Trinity College, London: Arts Award. Over the course of a few weeks, our artists come to the school to work with students to build their skills and reflective capacities within the arts media. At the end of the programme, students present a portfolio and if successful, each student is awarded a certificate by Trinity College.
We are interested in designing bespoke models of Arts Award with students. If you think your school would benefit from this, please get in touch.
