Celebrating Women in Photography Today – Together

Hundred Heroines is a unique contemporary museum and gallery dedicated to women in photography. We also have a comprehensive catalogue of online material, freely accessible.

The First Reveal

Our new space … before the removal men arrived.  We have a lot of unpacking to do over the next few weeks, and so we’re having a graduated opening, starting with the SCOBYLab and a small display of items from the Collection.  Keep an eye on the website for further details or sign up to the newsletter to be the first to know.

The Feminist Project for Rural Arts

Recent years have witnessed a revival in textile and fibre-based arts and many of the Heroines use textiles in their work.

Supported by The Ampersand Foundation, the Feminist Project for Rural Arts puts a contemporary spin on the local textile heritage.
