The Museum is working with many partners to engage with and express the alternative, intangible and lesser-told stories of our community.

We believe that creating a common platform for creative expression by artists and institutions relating to the representation of racial and religious identity, belonging, harmony and persecution, will assist in amplifying the reach and collective impact of stories of diversity,  and enhancing the benefits of a free, tolerant and inclusive society.

We also believe in creating a permanent online repository for these works, in collecting,  preserving and writing them into history as a complement to our mainstream social narrative.

If you are an artist committed to increasing the representation of diversity, and if you have projects that reflect the great multiplicity of stories in our community, we’d love to talk to you about contributing to our platform – please use our Contact Us page to get in touch.

“If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.

Make up a story… For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light. Don’t tell us what to believe, what to fear. Show us belief’s wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear’s caul.”

Toni Morrison
