Our Learning Lounge on Level 2 is the perfect place for a pause on your visit to Baltic. Here you will find a space to find out more about art, explore Baltic’s projects with partners, artists and our communities.

Baltic’s Learning Lounge is an informal learning space. All of the films playing in the Learning Lounge are subtitled.
