Beings: Exhibition Tour

  • Tuesday 9 April, 12.45-1.15pm


'Trying to get the inside out' is a quote from one of the young participants in the Beings exhibition. Can artworks from the national collection help young people express their emotions and the challenges they face? Robin Baillie and Richie Cumming from the National Galleries of Scotland Outreach Team discuss how they encouraged participants to create this exhibition addressing wellbeing.
