Diallo on Tour

From June 2012, Diallo’s portrait has been touring Britain, with special displays at the Gallery’s regional partners, Liverpool’s International Slavery Museum, South Shields Museum and Art Gallery, New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester. This tour concludes with the current display at the National Portrait Gallery. At each venue, Booker-prize winning author Ben Okri led creative writing workshops that explored Diallo’s story and relevance today.

This tour has been generously supported by the Qatar Museums Authority and Thomson Reuters and individual Gallery supporters.
