Based in West Bromwich, Multistory works with outstanding artists to make art with, for and about the people of Sandwell. Our projects reflect and celebrate everyday life from factories, pubs and clubs, people’s homes, gurdwaras and markets. We work with local residents, photographers, world-class artists, writers, documentary film-makers and many more.

Multistory commissions new work with critically acclaimed artists who are recognised by their peers for their work. We’re doing this in order to develop a body of outstanding work with, and for, the people in Sandwell. We also nurture and support emerging artists to tell their own stories and develop their own practice.

We want the communities of Sandwell and the Black Country to be able to work with the best artists we can bring here because they deserve no less, but also because we want them to be able to engage those artists in their creative work. Whatever we do must stand as a powerful artwork in its own right. We also believe that the best way to secure our work and its future is by producing outstanding work that people want to see, support and be involved in.

We have worked with a range of partners on a diverse range of projects across a variety of settings over the past years. These include: Magnum Photos, Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council, BBC, the Financial Times, The New Art Gallery Walsall, Oxford Brookes University, Sheffield University, Black Country Touring, Public Works and many, many more.
