Both Ben Uri’s collection and our work in the community focus on universal themes of Art, Identity and Migration. We work with audiences – young and old –from a diverse range of communities exploring contemporary issues through art and social history. This enables us to use our own 100+ year heritage, to connect with others and share a great range of engaging experiences and stories.
We’re dedicated to providing inclusive learning programmes for schools, families, communities and adult learners.
We want everyone to have access to and discover powerful works in the Ben Uri Collection and learn about Ben Uri’s artists and their stories, while developing creative and critical skills for exploring art and design.
Our award winning team have been consecutive National Sanford Heritage Education Award winners and work in collaboration with London Grid for Learning (LGFL) and the National Education Network, which gives 25,000 schools access to learning resources.
We are now redirecting investment to specialise and develop further our academic programme examining subject and content of exhibitions and about emigre artists in particular.
