Learning

Workshops

Students in classThe exhibition is accompanied by a series of workshops entitled Map Your World. Suitable for all ages, the workshops will explore maps, not just as geographic documents, but also as historical objects that hold evidence of social and historical thought. Through practical activities and creative research, students will try to uncover how practical purpose as well as ideological notion or agenda may influence the creation of maps and subsequently the development of a city and its social life.


Study Days

Students studyingStudy days are day-long workshops for students who are studying at AS/A2 level or equivalent. The first of these is taking place on December 1st. Teachers or individual students can book places for this date, or alternatively teachers may arrange for their own study day to take place on a date more convenient for them and their students.
