A portrait exhibition exploring who we were, who we are and who we want to be.

The Beaney has worked with the National Portrait Gallery as part of the National Skills Sharing Partnership Programme to curate a new exhibition inspired by the Canterbury Museums and Galleries Vision statement to explore:

“Who we were, who we are and who we want to be”

The exhibition will feature portraits from both the national and local collections that have celebrated Canterbury district’s notable associations and residents and will look back over time to discover who we have revered and why.

The exhibition aims to acknowledge the gaps, the omissions and the forgotten histories and will look to the future to challenge what equitable representation looks like.

The National Skills Sharing Partnership Programme is co-designed with partners to create a network of museums and galleries with the aim of exploring issues such as identity, representation and the contemporary relevance of portraits today.

Suggested donation £3.

Special Exhibitions Gallery, First Floor, The Beaney.
