Nothing About Us Without Us exhibition

This project is a celebration of the lives of 20 people in our community who have been most isolated throughout the Covid pandemic. As part of the project, they have given a series of interviews and had their portraits painted by local artist Erika Flowers. 

All sitters will keep their portrait but have agreed for them to be featured in an online exhibition on the Elmbridge Museum website. The portraits are also on display at the Civic Centre in Esher until the end of November 2022.

This project was managed by ‘It’s Not Your Birthday But’ in partnership with Elmbridge Museum and funded by Community Foundation for Surrey and The National Lottery Community Fund.
