Why Art Works

Storey Gallery is a member of North by NorthWest - a consortium of 12 publicly funded visual arts organisations which have come together to support, promote, and develop contemporary visual art in Lancashire and Cumbria.

We commissioned a study evaluating the economic, social, and cultural impacts of our contemporary visual art delivery.
The resulting report is entitled Why Art Works
