Each year we open our doors to celebrate the new academic year with behind the scenes tours for the higher education community.

The Institute's annual Academic Open Day includes bespoke tours of our exhibitions, Library and Archive, as well as an introduction to our forthcoming events programme.

If you are a tutor or a student with an interest in sculpture, this is the ideal introduction to the Institute and an opportunity to find out how our resources and academic events can enhance your work. 

The event will begin at 2pm with a schedule of talks and tours from Henry Moore Institute curatorial staff.

The day will conclude at 6pm with a guest lecture from artist Hilary Lloyd, hosted next door to the Institute in Leeds Art Gallery's Henry Moore Lecture Theatre.
