Celebrating Women in Photography Today – Together

Leading women photographers challenge how we see the world. They push artistic boundaries and highlight issues of social injustice. Using their work as a starting point, we provide a space for people to come together for shared creative experiences. This is particularly empowering for young women.

Located in Gloucester, we have a museum with a growing collection, a contemporary gallery, dedicated installation pods and a collaborative hub, as well as a large public creative canvas.

In The Museum

Our opening times are 10:30 – 16:00 on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.  Other times by arrangement. We’d love to meet you!

Online Resources

If you can’t visit the museum,  we have a growing portfolio of online resources, from listicles to more in-depth articles as well as a range of activities for all ages.  Many of these resources were created by volunteers during lockdown.
