Freedom of Expression
Towner has a strong responsibility to protecting its artists and is committed to promoting their freedom from censorship, harassment, threats, cultural violence, appropriation and silencing. Artists must be allowed to challenge norms and create debate: art often provokes us, and the artist’s intentions may be to evoke specific reactions and emotions from the viewer or to convey a specific message that allows us to understand ourselves and our society in a different way.
Confidential information and personal information about others, their work, or the gallery should not be disclosed.
Towner strives to make its online presence accessible to all users and is constantly working to improve its website's accessibility. We actively encourage the input and feedback of anyone whose needs are currently not being met. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring us on 01323 434670
