  ‘International in its scope and reputation… of all London’s galleries, it remains the one that is truly of the people.’ The Financial Times

The Whitechapel Project will build on partnerships with a local and global network of museums, galleries, educational organisations and communities.

In addition to Whitechapel’s touring exhibitions, the Collections and Archive Galleries will build on relationships with regional local authority museums and

National and International Collections ranging from Manchester City Art Gallery to MoMA, from the British Council to the Getty.

The expanded Whitechapel Gallery will offer an MA course in Curating with London Metropolitan University. Joining forces with London’s most diverse university, the Gallery will nurture young arts professionals from a variety of backgrounds.

The project is one of a number of new cultural initiatives emerging in East London and developing in dialogue with each other. The Gallery will work on public arts schemes with Vital Arts at the refurbished London Hospital; and programme joint projects with the new Rich Mix cultural centre.
