Event details

Rebecca Randle, Learning and Engagement Coordinator, and Helen Cobby, Assistant Curator, from The Barber Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Birmingham talk to Jenni Ramone about how galleries use gallery text and other methods to increase the public's engagement with art. There will also be discussions surrounding breastfeeding in contemporary and historical works of art.

This event is part of Bonington Gallery's year-long Formations programme, which was created in response to Black History Month, Black Lives Matter and the Decolonisation agenda, and delivered in partnership with Nottingham Trent University's Postcolonial Studies Centre.
