In 2008 Cartwright Hall re-opened its upper galleries with Connect, a new permanent exhibition funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Connect makes connections between works of art from different cultures and times. This transcultural concept combines over two hundred Eastern and Western works of art displayed according to the universal themes of People, Place and Imagination.
