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 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.
Ben Uri has 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.
Since 2019 we have redirected investment to BURU (Ben Uri Research Unit for the Study of the Jewish and Immigrant Contribution to the Visual Arts in Britain since 1900) to specialise and further develop our core academic programme.
