Creative Connections is a four-year project connecting young people with contemporary artists to create a series of new artworks inspired by the Gallery’s Collection.
The spotlights for the third year of the project are the London borough of Camden and the portraits and biographies of people who have local connections. The project partner is Haverstock school and the artist is photographer Kate Peters. Together they explored the Gallery and its photographic Collection, the history of the borough and created new portraits in response to these. The students and Kate’s work will be shown alongside the Gallery Collection in the display.
