We want the V&A to matter to more people and to inspire them wherever they live. Here is just some of the nationwide activity the Museum undertakes with museums, local authorities, universities and schools, charities and community groups.
The Wedgwood Collection
The Wedgwood Collection is one of the most important industrial collections in the world and a unique record of over 250 years of British ceramic production. Now owned by the V&A following a successful fundraising campaign, spear-headed by The Art Fund, it is on display at the Wedgwood Museum, Barlaston, Stoke-on-Trent, on long term loan from the Museum.
Touring Exhibitions for Hire
The V&A’s touring programme is one of the largest in the world and we deliver a high quality product to a variety of institutions internationally, working flexibly to accommodate the needs of individual venues and diverse audiences. Our extensive international touring programme stages exhibitions which combine world renown curatorial expertise with exceptional objects both from the V&A and other institutional and private collections.
The V&A is a global organisation, engaging with international contacts though cultural partnerships, trading, touring exhibitions, loans, advice and skills sharing. International work brings benefits to the Museum and its visitors by enriching our knowledge and expertise and opens up the V&A collections to international audiences through online resources, loans and exhibitions, and international partnerships.
