Fife Contemporary’s education work is integrated with its programme. Throughout the year, this can include practical workshops for adults & young people; work with schools and other community groups; and specialist interest events such as symposia which link to a specific exhibition. Not all educational activities are open to the public as they depend on the nature of each exhibition/project to which they’re connected.
