- A taster lecture on how to interpret artworks, specialising on portraits
- An opportunity to meet current Art History undergraduate students
- Activities in the Whitworth Gallery, which will include an art interpretation workshop using the techniques learnt in the taster lecture and activities with gallery staff (curators and/or conservators)
