The Wallace Collection joins Future Cities Forum's cultural cities debate in March

Dr Xavier Bray, Director of the Wallace Collection

Future Cities Forum is delighted that Dr Xavier Bray, Director of the Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London, is to speak at Future Cities Forum's 'Cutlural Cities' in March.

Dr Bray is an art historian specialising in Spanish art and became director of The Wallace Collection in 2016. Previously, he was Chief Curator at Dulwich Picture Gallery, London and the Museum of Fine Arts, Bilbao as well as Assistant Curator at the National Gallery.

Future Cities Forum will be discussing strategies for the continued financial survival of museums throughout the UK and their contribution to the social and emotional well-being of city populations. The Wallace Collection recently received a grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation to support its activities.

The Wallace Collection commented that:

'The support will be vital in helping the Collection to encourage visitors back to the museum after the pandemic.'
