The Big Art Herstory Project was founded in London in 2018, with the simple aim of telling the other side of the story, you know, the one that ISN’T told in Art Galleries, Museums, History books or Schools.

The need for this information is real and immediate, and through our events and classes we attempt to consolidate the many channels of information available into digestible, understandable chunks, because we believe that everyone has a right to this information, and if it isn’t on the curriculum, we’ll just put it there ourselves! We believe that everyone should know these incredible and often terrible stories, because when the shadow of economic downturns, ignorance and intolerance loom, women’s rights and the rights of minorities are the first rights that are eroded, and only knowledge openness, hard-work and compassion will begin to amend the skewed perspective of History, and that is what we’re here to do.
