Our work with higher education institutes

The Arts Council Collection works with curating courses at Higher Education Institutes to enable postgraduate research students to draw on the Collection to make exhibitions and displays. Students from the Courtauld Institue, London and Norwich University of the Arts have both worked with us to provide innovative and imaginative displays.
