Turner Prize Public Programme

​When it comes to visual art, Tramway has always been about participation as much as exhibition, so it is not surprising that the Turner Prize 2015 exhibition, open from 1 October, is accompanied by an ambitious public programme that has been months in the making.

Interested visitors might start their voyage of discovery by choosing from a range of tours, available at different times every weekend of the exhibition. Every Thursday, the exhibition will be open until 8pm and accompanied by a free tour. Our ‘Turner Prize Thursdays’ also include a ticketed panel discussion, talk or other curated event exploring different aspects of the art on display, or contemporary art in general. In October, themes will include ‘how to look at art’ with writer Susie Hodge, and a film screening introduced by shortlisted artist Bonnie Camplin.

Practical sessions will be on offer too, with weekly Adult Workshops inspired by the shortlisted artists and their practise. Amongst other things, participants will create a shelter, compose a sound piece, devise an intervention, or dabble in electromagnetic fields!

All age groups have been considered, with free Family Sessions every Sunday morning as well as monthly Autism Friendly Family Sessions, while creative young people will find much to enjoy in Turner Prize Youth Week (12-16 October). The Luminate week (26 – 29 October), part of Scotland’s Creative Ageing Festival, is for ages 50+.
