WHITE WALL YELLOW DOOR is an artist-run initiative set up by Ashley Amery and Sophy Rickett to provide museums, galleries, theatres and other cultural establishments with resources for families and children.

We provide a full service from initial consultancy and provision of content, to the design and delivery of our innovative, interpretive and distinctive educational material which help families with children get more out of the exhibitions, performances and events they visit.

We work with individual artists to develop, deliver, publicise and monitor the effect of the public benefit aspect of their funding applications. We have been closely involved with several successful bids to organisations such as Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, with a particular focus on developing public benefit and audience engagement.
