The National Portrait Gallery has recently re-opened its doors following the most extensive transformation of its building and displays since 1896. The transformation project, which was called ‘Inspiring People’, comprises a significant refurbishment of the building, a complete redisplay of the collection and a new commitment to access, inclusion, diversity and visitor welcome. Lucy Peltz was one of the steering group for the redisplay and will give an overview and a behind-the-scenes insight into the aims, objectives, challenges and achievements of ‘Inspiring People’.

About the Speaker: Lucy Peltz is Head of Collection Displays (Tudor to Regency) and Senior Curator 18th Century Collections at the National Portrait Gallery.

Bookings required by Wednesday 18 October at the latest, so that names can be supplied to the NPG in advance.

Meet promptly at the Orange Street entrance, 39-40 Orange Street, WC2H 7HS.
