Our Commitment to Anti-Racist Action

The Whitworth is a gallery for everybody. We know that our foundations were built via systems of Imperialism and Capitalism through industry and colonial exploitation. With that divisions in class, labour, race and gender escalated. We do not shy away from that past but instead we actively and continuously confront it so that we can give a voice to all those who have not been heard. We value your thoughts, your voice, your opinion. We are listening and we hear what you tell us.

This section of the website is the go to space to find and explore the ongoing work we are doing to create positive actions in the cultural and societal shift to ending racism in all forms; however this work should not be contained to this space but should permeate all our work as we use art in the world to make it a better place. For this we should be held to account by our staff, visitors, volunteers and working partners. The Whitworth's Anti-Racism Group exists in order to ensure this happens.
