Join us for a Wednesday Walkthrough – a gallery tour where artists, experts, researchers and academics give short talks in their field of expertise relating to the concepts explored in our exhibition.

In this Walkthrough Norma Gregory will give a talk around the themes of our current exhibition Hollow Earth: Art, Caves & the Subterranean Imaginary. Norma has a passion for history education and interprets diverse heritage through creative arts to inspire and enlighten others with new insights of the past through a re-examination of underexplored or misrepresented aspects of heritage. We will spend some time looking at the exhibition before reconvening for a group discussion about the themes and imagery found in the gallery.
