Ikon has been an educational charity since 1968, developing audiences for modern and contemporary art with emphasis on local communities. We do this through our public and youth programmes, our provision for schools, universities and families, and community outreach, including prisons.
Ikon’s Learning Programme is supported by Cass Art.
Adult learning at Ikon includes workshops, talks, seminars and performance.
Ikon is established as a sector leader for its work with school pupils of all ages, offering creative activities, tours and other projects.
