GHT selected to take part in Meeting Point programme

We are thrilled to announce that God’s House Tower has been chosen to take part in the Meeting Point programme.

Six museums and heritage sites have been selected to work in partnership with artists to commission a new work of art inspired by each venue.

As well as commissioning a new artwork which responds to their collection, each venue also receives training in best practice for working with artists.

A message from Mia Delve, Creative Programme Officer at ‘a space’ arts: “This is a really exciting opportunity for us to work with an acclaimed and experienced visual artist on a new commission at God’s House Tower. I’m really looking forward to working with the artist to uncover and interpret some of our lesser-known, marginalised histories. It will also be great to meet representatives from the other participating museums and hugely beneficial to exchange advice and discuss the challenges we face in the heritage sector, especially in these unprecedented times.”

The Meeting Point programme has previously worked with venues in the North East, North West and the midlands, partnering more than 20 museums with artists from across the UK. To find out more about Meeting Point, click here.

The six organisations taking part in this round of Meeting Point are: Didcot Railway Centre; the National Paralympic Heritage Centre in Aylesbury; Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology in Reading; Furzey Gardens in the New Forest National Park; and ‘a space’ arts and The Brickworks Museum in Southampton.
