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, starting later this year, 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 locally generated exhibitions and pop-up events, virtual trails 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 these stories and conversations.
We are particularly keen to engage younger people and socially isolated adults, particularly those who have been shielding.
Would you or your organisation be interested in participating in this project? If so, we would be keen to hear from you. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
