Firstsite: The Britishness Project


17 March – 17 June 2018 

Firstsite, Colchester, is delighted to present The Britishness Project, a groundbreaking exhibition that investigates notions of Britishness through art making.

The show, which was initiated by the gallery, is the result of a collaboration between Essex schoolchildren and eight professional artists, each of whom undertook residencies in schools and education organisations in Colchester, Harlow and Harwich between September and December 2017.
