Kettle’s Yard Development Plans
Since 1957 people of all ages and backgrounds have found Kettle’s Yard a place of inspiration and creativity. At the heart of the building project is one aim: to renew Kettle’s Yard so it continues to inspire successive generations.
The project will create a new Education Wing, environmentally controlled galleries and better services for visitors, including a café.
It will transform our work with school groups and young people, enable us to organise exhibitions with major artists from around the world, display 20th century art in the right conditions, and have the facilities to encourage even more people to enjoy all that Kettle’s Yard has to offer.
“The plans for sensitively furthering ways in which Kettle’s Yard can continue to live, breathe and inspire are very exciting…… They will ensure Kettle’s Yard becomes a crucial social hub and a place where major exhibitions of contemporary and historic art can continue to have a fascinating dialogue with Jim Ede’s legacy.”
