The Brontës are famous as writers, but were interested in many art forms, and have inspired successive generations of writers and artists. Our ambition is for the Brontë Parsonage Museum to truly reflect the Brontës' own remarkably diverse creative talents and the rich heritage of artistic response to their lives and works. Through our contemporary arts programme we commission and showcase new responses to the Brontës and the Parsonage Museum’s collection from established writers and artists working today. We run a vibrant programme of exhibitions, screenings, talks, readings and lectures, as well as creative days for Museum visitors to experience the Parsonage in imaginative ways and to explore their own creativity. The Contemporary Arts programme is funded by Arts Council England.
