Increasing Engagement

John Hasgard workshop
John Hansard Gallery Associate Artists Stair/Slide/Space

A vital element of the strategy’s success is the John Hansard Gallery now relocated to a new purpose-built space in Southampton’s Cultural Quarter. In May 2018, Sir Nicholas Serota, Chair of Arts Council England, officially launched our reopening exhibition by Gerhard Richter, one of the world’s most celebrated living artists. With additional support from University of Southampton and Arts Council England, the Gallery has unveiled its new public-facing approach, actively connecting with audiences through learning, interaction and participation.

Throughout 2018-2019 the Gallery is working with artist collective Stair/Slide/Space to playfully engage with audiences alongside all the incredible exhibitions during our reopening year. We are also creating ‘Your Voices’, a community panel to ensure that our audiences’ voices are heard and present within all our activities. And JHG Beacons and Ambassadors schemes will create professional opportunities for young people to explore working in the arts.
