Tour and capacity building evaluation

2017 - 2020

Evaluation of the national tour and capacity building programme linked to the recent acquisition of Le Passeur (The Ferryman) 1881 by William Stott of Oldham, supported by National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund, the John Ellerman Foundation and Art Fund. The painting will be displayed at Tate Britain until January 2018 and will then tour to four UK-partner galleries: Oriel y Parc, Southampton City Art Gallery, Gallery Oldham and Aberdeen Art Gallery. An associated programme of workshops and strategic loan bursaries for colleagues from museums, galleries and other venues across the UK will build capacity to share artworks and champion the ongoing development of collection management skills.

This evaluation is in partnership with Dr Claire Antrobus.
