School and community groups are always welcome visitors to exhibitions at Griffith University Art Gallery. Booking at least one week in advance will ensure that staff can be on hand to deliver a talk about the current exhibition and answer questions. Given notice, we can open the Gallery for groups.
Current secondary school education resource
The Mnemonic Mirror
This resource has been created for use by teachers and secondary students to engage with artworks and themes in The Mnemonic Mirror exhibition at Griffith University Art Gallery. The concepts underpinning the exhibition provide an ideal focus for units of study relating to memory and identity. This resource can be utilised by school groups visiting the exhibition or to assist with learning experiences in the classroom.
Teachers can use the questions featured in this resource to prompt individual responses from students or as a starting point for wider discussion.
In planning and writing this resource Griffith University Art Gallery has consulted the Australian Curriculum: Visual Arts, Years 7 to 10 and the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority’s Visual Art (2007) syllabus.
Engaging the community
Open to all art lovers, everyone is welcome at the Griffith University Art Gallery. Our Public Programs are often conceived in relation to exhibitions and we host talks, tours and lectures for the public to attend. Local and international speakers provide rich substance that widen debates and interest in art.
Group or school visits
Griffith University Art Gallery welcomes visits from schools, universities and community groups. We will provide an introductory talk on the exhibition by prior arrangement, and with at least one week’s notice. There is no charge.
School groups should include one supervising teacher for each group of 10-15 students, with up to a maximum of 40 school students in the group. Contact the Gallery to make a booking: firstname.lastname@example.org
Education Kits for teachers and students will be made available for download as they become available, they can be used before, during or after a visit to Griffith University Art Gallery.
