The Learning Department has a partnership with Portugal Prints (part of Westminster Mind). The service users participate in regular workshops with the Royal Academy. These involve both a gallery conversation and an artmaking session at Portugal Prints or the RA Learning Studio, led by an artist educator. Portugal Prints is also a paid contractor of the RA, creating, designing and printing our Large Print Labels for all three exhibitions in the RA’s Sackler Wing of Galleries each year.

Last year Disability Arts Online’s Diverse Perspectives programme enabled Dolly Sen to create a short documentary. She chose to focus her commission on exploring the relationship Portugal Prints has with the RA’s Access Programme. Click here to watch the film
Thank you so much for the great tour we had with you, we all really enjoyed it. The tour leader was really engaging and gave us all a great insight into the art works, and has to have been the best guided tours I've ever been on!! Thank you for a memorable trip.
