Our Vision and Values

Nottingham Contemporary's mission is to be a home for collaboration. Everything we do is collaborative. We believe art can be a prism for better understanding the world and each other.

We believe in the power of contemporary art to inspire, challenge, and transform. Our exhibitions, events, and learning programmes offer opportunities for people to encounter, experience, learn about and participate in contemporary art and culture. We host and produce ambitious exhibitions and vibrant events that both challenge and surprise.

Our vision is to be a leading international contemporary art gallery, known for our innovative exhibitions, live programmes, and engagement with the community. We aim to be a space where art connects, connecting people across our city and around the world, nurturing and shaping the future of art and ideas.

Our values of being brave, open, hopeful, and resourceful reflect our commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and access in the arts. We are not afraid to take risks, embrace new ideas, and challenge the status quo. We are open to different perspectives and believe in creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome. Our hope is that contemporary art will inspire people to imagine a better world, and our resourcefulness allows us to find creative solutions to the challenges we face.

At Nottingham Contemporary, we are dedicated to fostering a supportive and inclusive environment for all. We believe in working together with our staff, artists, partners, and audiences to create a dynamic and meaningful cultural experience.

We invite you to join us on our journey as we explore and celebrate the power of contemporary art and culture. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
