Sharon Walters is a London-based artist with a fine art degree from Central St Martins. Her current series entitled, ‘Seeing Ourselves’ is a multi-disciplinary project celebrating black women, their histories and futures. The work expands across papercuts, collage works, mixed media works and events in collaboration with various organisations. The intention of her practice is to empower those who are marginalised to take up space, create their own spaces and develop opportunities to be seen, heard and instigate change.

Monday 10th October 2022
Digital platforms – Personal connections – Lived experience
Hear from Royal Museums Greenwich about the ways in which they have been using digital platforms to create authentic digital spaces for communities to discuss their relationships to the collection and creatively and critically respond to them. RMG will discuss the impacts of the Seeing Ourselves podcast created by Sharon Walters that interrogated the ways in which black women have been represented and mis-represented in the collection. Also, the recently launched digital tour of the Queen’s House called Fierce Royals: A Very Gay Tour that captures the energy and significance of the annual LGBTQ+ takeover of the Queen’s House.
