Sporting Heroes Spotlight


As part of Black History Month, our Youth Forum delved into the Collection to look at key contemporary sporting figures. From ballet dancers to footballers, they’ve selected eight portraits that inspire them and celebrate the impact and achievements of Black British sportspeople.

The Youth Forum collaborate to shape the offer and relevance of the Gallery for young people. We work with the Youth Forum on new ideas for interpretation and display, activities and resources for young people and reviews of our exhibitions. If you’d like to get involved with the Youth Forum, you can find out more about the group on our website and follow @NPGYouth on social media for updates.
