As the Gallery is currently closed for major redevelopment work, meetings are taking place virtually so anyone in the UK can take part. Opportunities to meet in person at the Gallery and at London locations will be explored later in 2022. Meetings take place once a month on a weeknight, from 5.30-7.30pm
