Welcome

The Model engages children, young people, families and those of all ages in contemporary art and culture through its wide range of programmes and projects. Informative tours of the contemporary programme and The Niland Collection are led by our curators and learning team, enabling visitors to engage with, discuss and reflect upon contemporary art.

The Model offers artist talks, seminars and film screenings all year round and works closely with professional artists, teachers, curators and communities to broaden an understanding and enjoyment of visual and contemporary art culture.

We respond to cultural changes in contemporary art practice, inviting participation and exploration in a fun and creative environment.
