We create great art that people in Sandwell will want to take part in, be part of, see and talk about. We commission excellent, critically acclaimed artists because local people deserve to see and work with the best. We produce photographic work, films, exhibitions, publications, digital stories and archives that speak not just to Sandwell but to the whole country and beyond. Above all, we work with artists to tell compelling stories that demand to be heard.

Exhibition Opening

Martin Parr Black Country Stories

Saturday 23 May to Saturday 22 August, Wolverhampton Art Gallery

Between 2010 and 2014, Magnum photographer, Martin Parr, travelled the Black Country and met hundreds of people to create a portrait of everyday life through photography, film and oral histories. This is another opportunity to see this wonderful exhibition.
