Founded by Lorraine Gabriel, curator of the two dimensional public services display Generation – Generation Exhibition and Caribbean UK Film Festival (C UK FF) of which she is both founder and artistic director.
Lorraine is a woman who champions the way forward and is increasingly known as a one of many 1st’s. She is the first person to curate an exhibition with a film festival, in the UKs leading venue of Art and Design where she also became the first person to produce a conference, exhibition and film festival focused on the contributions of Black Britons to society since the 1950’s linking African objects and collections such as Ghana Gold on display in the Victoria & Albert Museum to living legends, presentations, masterclasses, tours and talks by High Commissioners enabling interactivity to educate and inform visitors of this fascinating history.
It will come as no surprise that she is notoriously known as a trail blazer in some circles, a media mogul, PR extraordinaire and fashionista in others, the head of GMI is one of the UK’s most ambitious serial entrepreneurs who has worked behind the scenes in a number of roles on established leading events, some taking place annually in the UK.
Gabriel Media International is a multi-faceted entertainment and projects management company and business consultancy. Fostered on the owners love of the arts, the company works predominantly, whilst not exclusively in the creative industries. GMI’s portfolio shapes the way forward for an excursion into the avant garde of commerce, continually breaking barriers and glass ceilings in local, national and international trade.

Meet our PARTNERS at the Victoria and Albert Museum: Learning and Interpretation through the Black Heritage programme: The Learning Department runs a year-round programme of events for a range of audiences, both in the galleries and in the state-of-the-art Sackler Centre for arts education. There are programmes for schools, families, young people, adults, students and creative industry professionals, including digital and community events and activities.
Learning Department staff also develop online learning content and other educational resources, such as trails and back-packs. All of these activities are firmly rooted in, and inspired by, the V&A’s collections and exhibitions. The Learning Department also undertakes visitor research, develops interpretation – from labels to computer interactives – and manages the Museum Residencies programme in the Sackler Centre Studios and the Ceramics Studio.
Staff from the Department also work across the Museum on cultural diversity, disability access, social inclusion and other equality issues. JANET BROWNE programmes the BLACK HERITAGE SEASON at the museum and jointly project managed the Generation – Generation Exhibition, (© G2G), ‘Caribbean UK Film Festival (© CUKFF), and Generation – Generation Weekender 2009’ since their inception in 2008 where they were held as special events in the museum and 2009 formed part of the ‘Beneath the Surface’ heritage programme before successfully culminating into Gabriels’ first curatorial venture in the now biennial event in 2011.
