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.

Temporary Display

While we prepare to move into our permanent space, we have a selection of items on display, representing both different aspects of the collection and project highlights.

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.
