How the Explore programme works:

The Explore programme is made up of three, ten-week seasons broadly similar to university terms in their timing.  The three seasons are taught by expert tutors many of whom teach at the region's universities.  The programme contains a varied mix of courses, lectures, study groups and walks including some practical art.  

A team of member volunteers plans the Explore programmes under the guidance of tutor directors Bronwen Calvert and Colm O'Brien. The team is divided into the following subject areas :
  • Art & Design : Jack Massey and Helen Watson
  • Culture & Society : Joy Rutter and Kath Smith
  • Narratives : Rita Prabhu and Angela Young
  • Perspectives : Chris Burridge and Joy Rutter
There is also a member led fourth season over the summer period. Click HERE to go to the Season 4 page.
