Join Bob and Roberta Smith in conversation with Tate Liverpool's Artistic Director Francesco Manacorda to discuss the role of the art gallery at the Leggate Theatre, Victoria Gallery and Museum, Liverpool.

Bob's lecture will take the audience on a journey through the five reasons Bob feels art is a crucial subject for children's development. He will discuss his Art Party movement, exploring ideas of how the function of art galleries should transform into becoming spaces where the public can see what’s going on, not just in the art world but in the world around them in every aspect.
