Our engagement programme

Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 has an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.

We are exploring sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
