Children Heard and Seen supports children and families in their communities who are impacted by parental imprisonment. Throughout 2023, participants from Children Heard and Seen have visited Modern Art Oxford each month, to co-create these life-size silhouettes. Made collaboratively, each figure shows traces of the different hands that have shaped it.

We offer a range of facilities to ensure we are accessible to visitors. Please click here to find out more about visiting Modern Art Oxford. If you have any questions about your visit, please get in touch at
