Client Testimonials

We are extremely passionate about the work that we do and put our all into exceeding the expectations of our Clients and every single project we work on.

“Tate partnered with CultureTree on Portraits of a Community, a project connected to A World in Common exhibition at Tate Modern. CultureTree gathered a group of people from the African diaspora to sit for portraits by the photographer Ruth Ginika Ossai. CultureTree, led sensitively and confidently by Gbemi, were integral to the success of the project – a necessary bridge between Tate and the project participants and a dependable and thoughtful partner. The project was joyful, emotional, celebratory and a high point of both the exhibition and my work at Tate.” 
Julia LePla, Senior Manager, Learning Partnerships, Tate
“A huge thank you and congratulations, you put together such an amazing line-up. It was very special, and we are so grateful for your generosity.”
Paul Crook, Head of Education, South London Gallery
