Lowewood Museum is scheduled re-open this summer and our new Trust Board is keen to forge a new direction for the Museum, reaching out to local communities across the Borough from Waltham Cross to Hoddesdon, Goff’s Oak and along the Lea Valley.
We are planning a three- year project that will develop a series of locally generated projects enabling people celebrate their heritage, past and present, drawing on personal memories, local stories and the Museum’s collections, including our rich collection of historic photographs.
We are seeking funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to support these locally generated exhibitions and pop -up events, virtual trails etc. as well as to recruit a team of Community Curators to help us redefine the Museum’s displays and develop our website and social media content to share stories and conversations.
We are particularly keen to engage with younger people, people who are socially isolated or have health conditons and reach out to new communities within the Borough.
Would your organisation be interested in participating in this project? If so, we would be keen to hear from you and to invite you to an online workshop on Thursday 6 May. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 30 April to register your interest.
At this stage we wish to engage with representatives of organisations working in the Borough. Opportunities for individuals to participate in this project will be communicated as the project develops.
