Black Lives Matter
A statement from Evelyn Welch, Chair of Trustees and Jennifer Scott, Director
Dulwich Picture Gallery stands in solidarity with all victims of racism and with those who seek an equal, just and non-violent society. We share the anguish expressed by so many about the killing of George Floyd, and we believe it is an essential truth that Black Lives Matter.
Dulwich Picture Gallery was established more than 200 years ago specifically to make art accessible. As the first public art gallery in the country, we recognise our responsibility to provide meaningful and relevant experiences for everyone.
We must and will do better. We are working with local community groups and actively educating ourselves, listening and learning to ensure we are reflective of the world we live in. We are committed to ensuring our team, programme, partnerships and reach are genuinely inclusive.
In these difficult times, we find hope through the power of creativity: art expresses the human experiences that unite us all.
