Tuesday 25 September to Friday 16 November 2018

In conjunction with the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ 2018 Archibald Prize, Geelong Gallery will facilitate group-based discussions, looking at portraits from the Gallery’s collection and works in the 2018 Archibald Prize. The program promotes health and well-being through visual and intellectual stimulation for people who are affected by barriers of access to arts, culture and learning activities due to factors of mobility, economic disadvantage and social context, transportation, mental health and isolation.
