We are very pleased to announce that after 6 months of fundraising and working behind the scenes Ort Gallery will reopen to the public with an exciting new programme of exhibitions, performances, events and opportunities for artists in autumn 2016. Recent strategic investment by the Arts Council England’s Elevate fund has made this possible for us.
“It’s essential that the arts and cultural landscape of England reflects the diversity of society” says Arts Council’s director of diversity, Abid Hussain and we are getting ready to launch an exciting high quality programme in autumn 2016 that celebrates diversity.
Ort Gallery’s Exhibition Programme for 2016 to 2018 will focus on working with a diverse group of artists in order to represent the demography of the UK. We will run ten exhibition projects over two years looking at subjects of Britishness, personal Heritage, Citizenship, Home and Belonging, the Black Diaspora and the LGBT community. These themes will allow us to develop our diverse audiences, fostering meaningful engagement and attracting new audiences. This includes professional development of emerging talent and the provision of opportunities within the sector through a new membership scheme.
