A free morning of art, performance and workshops for community groups.
A Community View of our latest exhibition, Masculinities: Liberation through Photography. Using photography and film, this exhibition considers how masculinity has been coded, performed, and socially constructed from the 1960s to the present day. Barbican Community Views are free interactive private views where groups get the opportunity to visit the Art Gallery and Conservatory and attend a number of creative workshops. These events are specifically for community groups who may otherwise struggle to access the exhibition. Community Views are open to community groups, charities and neighbourhood centres. Please check eligibility and register by emailing [email protected]
The Morning Community View will include:
- Free access to the Art Gallery on Level 3 from 11am
- A workshop in the Garden Room
- Coffees, teas and biscuits
Please let us know if you would like to bring a group to the Community View by emailing [email protected] with the date of the event. We have an evening community view taking place on Monday 4 May at 6:30-9:30pm.
We are sorry to announce this event has been cancelled.
The Art Gallery is located on Level 3 and can be accessed by stairs and lifts from Level G or via the Sculpture Court if coming from outside.

Enhanced security measures are currently in place at the Barbican.
As part of these measures only one reasonably-sized bag (no larger than 32cm L x 18cm W x 22cm H) per person may be taken inside our venues and all bags may be searched by a member of our team.
We ask that, where possible, visitors avoid bringing large bags to the Centre. If you do need to check bags into our free cloakrooms, we suggest arriving early. All bags deposited will be subject to search and random bag searches are also in operation.
Please also remember that belongings should not be left unattended at any time.
Thank you for your understanding – we look forward to welcoming you to the Barbican.
