Mayor of London's strategy for equality, diversity and inclusion
‘Movements change the world. Throughout history, loosely organised networks of individuals and organisations have sought changes to societies – and won. From the abolitionist struggle and campaigns for voting rights to #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter, the impact of movements can be seen everywhere.’ Runnymede Trust

Hands on Islamic Arts is a three year National Lottery Heritage Fund project to enable Museums & Heritage venues to make the most of their Islamic art collections. The initiative will enable curators and educators to see their collections from a different perspective and develop projects enabling audiences to discover Islamic art held in British collections. Community engagement will bring contemporary interpretation and understanding of Islamic art and engage British Muslims and British Asians in sharing how objects reflect their culture. With Dr Samina Zahir.
‘The arts inspire people, make communities more creative and strengthen economies.’
Serpentine Galleries believe there is significant potential to increase audience numbers, grow the diversify of their audiences and increase visitor engagement and retention. Specific target audiences are non-vocational visitors, ethnically diverse populations, younger people and families with children.
Working with Mel Larsen, we are developing an Audience Planning and Development framework, involving the full Serpentine team to review vision, purpose, organisational direction and routes to achieve ambitions for audiences and programming.
