mima is keen to support people’s understanding and enjoyment of the work around them. We regularly have talks and tours from curators, artists, visiting lecturers, writers, and other gallery staff, who offer various ways in to getting to grips with exhibitions and artists. Introductory talks around specific exhibitions, talks from artists within our programme, themed talks that focus on wider art themes, all offer a range of opportunities for people to access. mima’s rich collection of fine and applied arts is another area that we focus on with store tours and specific handling sessions. In partnership with Platform A Gallery and Teesside University, we run a lively series of debate for artists, our Desired Futures series.

“We liked the life drawing by local artists attending the gallery class – we think that this kind of participation is so important.”
