Book Your School Tours and Workshops

Liverpool Biennial 2018 welcomes all schools and education groups to experience international art in Liverpool’s museums, public spaces, galleries and civic spaces this summer and autumn term.

Children are working together with artists to present exhibitions, projects and workshops specifically for young audiences.

We can offer bespoke tours and workshops with educators, who will make sure you make the most of your visit, guiding the children and young people on the day and providing them with useful information and resources to keep them busy.
