20/20 Project

The Harris is delighted to announce we will be working with talented artist Hannah Sabapathy. 20/20 is an ambitious 3-year programme announced by UAL Decolonising Arts Institute in November 2021. The project will support 20 emerging ethnically diverse artists of colour to take up residencies with 20 public art collections across the country, leading to 20 new permanent acquisitions.

Mapokwe Basket
– Phil Kaila

Join Phil as he reads to our younger audience. The story of the Mapokwe basket is about how a young Zambian girl learns that she must be prepared to work hard for the things that she most wants in life. The story links to the baskets from Zambia listed in the Harris collection.
