Exhibition on Screen Founder and Executive Producer Phil Grabsky says Over the previous weeks, we have seen an incredible response from creatives and institutions around the world, working hard to make art accessible to so many of us who are unable to leave our homes.
These are extraordinary times, but one thing that brings me great comfort is the mobilisation of communities - local and global - to tackle the many unexpected challenges we are facing. I strongly believe that the arts play a vital role in our creating that community.
