Show 2017: Guided Visits for School and College Groups

ReachOutRCA is the Royal College of Art engagement programme for young people. As part of Show 2017 we are offering a small number of free guided visits for school and college groups.

During the session, your students will work with RCA graduates to respond critically and creatively to the wide variety of work on display through writing and discursive activities. They'll also get to share their ideas with a graduating artist or designer.

The session will be a brief introduction to the RCA and the Show – we hope that afterwards you and your group will stay on and explore more areas of the exhibition.
