Bring your school group to Autograph for a hands-on visual arts workshop exploring themes of our current exhibition Mónica de Miranda: The Island. As a group you will get to explore themes of utopia, ecology and identity as students are guided through the exhibition, followed by a practical workshop. We will pause for lunch at 12:30pm for an hour in our Education Studio.

What is a utopia? What would you like in a perfect world?
What are the key changes around climate and culture we are interested in exploring?
