The Courtauld National Partners programme works with partners to provide unique opportunities for communities across the UK to engage with The Courtauld Gallery’s collection.

The programme focuses on The Courtauld’s shared industrial heritage with locations across the UK, including Ashton-under-Lyne, Belfast, Braintree, Coventry, Flintshire, Hull, Preston and Wolverhampton.

Inspired by the legacy of Courtaulds Ltd, the textile company that made Samuel Courtauld his fortune, The Courtauld is collaborating with local museums and galleries to develop exhibitions, volunteer led projects and school workshops that engage with young people and communities, to learn more about the history of Samuel Courtauld’s collection and Courtaulds Ltd in their area.
