Film: Welcome to the Collection

To celebrate the launch of our three year National Partners Programme with Arts Council Collection, last year we recruited a fantastic group of local residents, most with little or no experience of contemporary art, to become our Art Champions and introduced them to the Collection’s vast and extraordinary archive of modern and contemporary art.
Follow their journey as they travel across the UK to delve into the archives, meet staff from the Collection, have exclusive tours behind the scenes, and are introduced to some of the most exciting pieces of art in the country.
