Join artists from collective Portugal Prints on a curated 30-minute tour of their selection of works from this year’s Summer Exhibition.

Portugal Prints is a collective of artists based in Arlington House in Camden. They provide a non-clinical, but highly therapeutic environment for people living with mental health difficulties. They use art as a platform for self-development and for gaining a sense of purpose. By working collectively, they aim to bring people together, supporting them to build relationships and fulfil their potential.

The RA has been working in partnership with Portugal Prints for over seven years. People accessing their services work with RA artist educators to co-deliver monthly workshops for other members of their group, inspired by our exhibitions.

For this tour, Portugal Prints artists Mike and Steve will select a number of works from this year’s Summer Exhibition and share their personal interpretations and responses. We invite you to accompany them as they describe why their chosen works have captured their imagination.

The tour will last approximately 30 minutes.

The event has limited capacity, headsets for the tour will be distributed on a first come first served basis.
