Imperial Artworks Group
How we represent our community reflects our values. The present focus on who is represented in images of various kinds around the College provides us with an opportunity to consider how we want to portray our community, and to reflect its diversity and impact in the world.
The College has commissioned a group under the aegis of President’s Board to propose ways in which its diverse community can be celebrated by means of images and depictions of alumni, staff and students. The intent is to recognise the breadth of our community in its many aspects, as part of the College’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
The Artworks group are asking the Imperial Community to share photos of art in their departments to help better understand what is displayed around campus.
We also want to hear views about spaces that might be good places for new art, opinions on our current artwork, and the kinds of art our community would like to see around campus - including figures we might want to reflect in our art. Our community can email us with thoughts and pictures to: email@example.com
