Today, tomorrow and forever, Whitechapel Gallery stands in solidarity and support with black communities around the world. We have an individual and collective duty to do better.
All of us at Whitechapel Gallery have been thinking about the best way to express our support for the Black Lives Matter movement at this critical time. We are actively participating in raising awareness of the movement by encouraging supporting, donating, listening and learning:
1. Donate to the victims. Donate to the protesters. Donate to campaigns for justice. Donate to black owned businesses and organisations internationally.
2. Sign petitions for change.
3. Educate, research, listen.
It’s more important than ever that we also open the conversation beyond our walls, speak with our audiences and neighbours whilst using our platform to effect change. We have a lot of work to do ourselves and we’d love to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to get in touch.
