Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Internationally renowned photographer Jillian Edelstein will be joined by Abigail Scott Paul, former Deputy Director of Advocacy & Engagement for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, to discuss the responsibility of artists and philanthropic organisations.

Just as GF Watts documented, the plight of the poor, social injustice and poverty remain pressing issues for artists and activists today.

Jillian Edelstein and Abigail Scott Paul will discuss the responsibility artists and philanthropic organisations have to highlight the stories and experiences of those living in poverty today.

This talk will take place on Zoom.
