When protests about the killing of George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter movement were front-page news around the world, we wanted to respond in a way that demonstrated our support and commitment to anti-racism and greater equality.As a team of white people, we recognise our privilege which allows us to make our voices heard, and we decided to invite Black and minority ethnic creators to use our platforms as a way of amplifying and supporting their work.This piece, ‘STOP’ by Maggie Scott, is the first of four commissions.

Don’t miss this intriguing and diverse exhibition of 2 and 3D work from a selection of artists.
