Public Programmes

The Cabinet hosts a variety of public programmes and also serves as a space for educational workshops for school groups or interested members of the public. In collaboration with our Residents, we hope to provide experiential learning environments that emphasise critical and independent thinking. If you are an Artist/Academic who is interested in activating our archives for a public programme, please contact us at
