Opening a Door to the South West 

White Wall Yellow Door, an initiative which provides museums, galleries and theatres with resources for families, is delighted to announce its plans to launch in Exeter.  

Sophy Rickett, Director of White Wall Yellow Door (WWYD) says: “Over the last four years, we have firmly established ourselves in London and have developed a diverse portfolio of projects with clients including Trinity Buoy Wharf, the Petrie Museum of Egyptology and the Freud Museum. We have had some fantastic feedback and now feel we are in a great position to expand outside London.” 

“With the pandemic in progress, we understand that this is a very uncertain and turbulent time for arts and culture. Museums and cultural establishments will be looking at how to draw family audiences back in a safe and fun way. Our resources for kids and families have proven to be an extremely cost-effective way of empowering and inspiring small family visitor groups to engage imaginatively and meaningfully with the exhibits on display.” 

Based in Exeter, Communications and Marketing professional Lucy Sainsbury, will be heading up operations in the area. Lucy adds: “I have been very impressed with the work that White Wall Yellow Door has produced with their clients in London. The South West is full of fascinating and beautifully curated museums, galleries and cultural establishments and I am really excited to be joining the team and launching the initiative in the South West. We feel that there is great potential to form partnerships in this region to help widen participation and increase family benefit.”  

White Wall Yellow Door is an artist led initiative which creates resources for families and children and families to help them to get the most out of the exhibitions and performances they are visiting.
