Curious Takeover at York Art Gallery

Experience York Art Gallery in a whole new light this half-term at the Curious Takeover!  

Head to York Art Gallery on Saturday 26th February as they celebrate families of all shapes and sizes through colourful, creative activities inspired by the Gallery itself, in celebration of LGBT History Month. The Curious Takeover activities are for all the family, with things to do for all ages. You can settle down for Drag Storytime, create your own family logo, take part in Protest Poster Making and practice your best power poses in Learn to Vogue. The activities take place throughout the day and are free to take part in.
