Take time for yourself and experience something new with our Slow Art Sessions – these relaxed, drop-in tours take a closer look at selected works from IMMA’s exhibitions. Talking about an artwork with someone else can open our eyes to new details and reveal things we did not see at first. These tours will help you to slow down and spend time with selected artworks, discussing them with others in a convivial and supportive atmosphere.  

All are welcome to sign up for this free programme, no previous experience required.   

Slow Art Sessions is offered as part of IMMA Horizons: Lifelong Creativity for the Curious. IMMA Horizons provides free creative experiences and events for adults to meet and explore art together at a relaxed pace, in a sociable and supportive environment that encourages active participation by all. Take time for yourself and discover new ways of looking at the world and connecting with others, through facilitated experiences at IMMA and online.
