Gallery Image offers several programmes to introduce a broad range of audiences to both current exhibitions as well as the development and role of art photography.
Through our cooperation with ULF (educational programmes for schools in the city of Aarhus), we wish to work closely together with the teachers to customise our courses to specific lessons and time tables. Our courses typically address the lower and upper secondary education, but can also be focused on younger groups.

Guided tours for other groups

At Galleri Image, we are happy to arrange tours for groups outside the ULF-system - for instance companies, schools, special interest groups, and other institutions. Based on individual needs and wishes, we will arrange a tour of the current exhibition and introduce you to the unique history of our gallery and the development of modern photography.
