Firstsite named ‘Museum of the Year’!

Firstsite in Colchester has won the prestigious ‘Museum of the Year’ award 2021.


The Art Fund Museum of the Year, is the world’s largest museum prize, it celebrates the UK’s museums and galleries, and this year reflects the resilience and imagination of museums throughout the pandemic.


A Firstsite spokes person said “Along with this prestigious title, we have been awarded £100,000. This amazing prize will enable us to continue working closely with the people of Colchester and the surrounding areas on more fantastic projects, reach even more local children and give them regular opportunities to be creative, active and well-nourished when they’re not at school, and maintain our ongoing commitment to artists – supporting them to continue to create projects which challenge us all and help us to think differently.”
