We aim to make art accessible, relevant and personally fulfilling for all members of our community.
We do this by finding innovative and dynamic ways for people to engage with art and Turner Contemporary, through a rich programme of community projects and events.
We aim to create a dynamic community around our gallery and Margate that embraces and stimulates change and reaches to wider local, national and international communities.
Explore exhibitions with a Navigator, who has been specially trained to generate discussion inspired by your questions.
Our friendly team of Navigators are there to help you get more out of the gallery and the exhibition. Led by your questions, they will spark discussion as they take you on a personal tour. Find out more >
