Communities: Promoting Lifelong Learning and Wellbeing

In partnership with community and special interest groups, we promote lifelong learning, digital skills and wellbeing with older learners (aged over 55) and other audiences, such as people living with dementia.

Learning can take place at any age and our community sessions take inspiration from architecture and our world-class collections. Participants explore and discover architectural themes while developing skills and knowledge such as writing, digital drawing, 3D printing, photography or model making. Sessions take place both offsite at local centres or at our iconic London headquarters.

We invite groups to get in touch and to collaborate with us in designing a two-hour session of activities that are suitable for their participants and members. Sessions are free, supported by experienced RIBA Learning staff and take place on weekdays throughout the year. Advance booking is essential.

For individuals, from 25 April 2019, we are introducing monthly, drop-in art workshops Explore and Make at the RIBA to celebrate the opening of our new Clore Learning Centre. Each year we also take part in Silver Sunday, a nationwide celebration of the contribution of older people. All these events are free and for those aged 55 or over.

To find out more, please email learning@riba.org or call 020 7307 3798.
