Our impact in 2023

Art UK's mission is simple: to connect you to art, whether you are a school child or scholar, a teacher or tourist. From one incredible digital platform, anyone can delve into the wealth of the nation's art. We unite almost 3,500 collections big and small – from local museums to large universities – and bring their artworks to millions of people. Art UK inspires creativity, supports lifelong learning and gives everyone a unique opportunity to discover art that inspires.

As a pioneering charity which has created the UK's largest ever institutional arts partnership, we are committed to innovation. Over the past 12 months we have developed a new Art UK Shop platform to help collections generate critical revenue, launched a groundbreaking education programme – The Superpower of Looking – that will transform young lives, and begun planning to add millions of object records to our site as the game-changing Museum Data Service gets underway.
