Legends we can be…

What if there was a place for you to share stories of your heroes and justice seekers? 
A place for change agents to celebrate their legacy and the legacy of their community.
A museum of legends.


We begin with the story of Gertrude Paul...

Launching on the 2nd of March!

A group of young people from Chapeltown have been working hard to answer this question and curate their own museum. We are delighted to announce the launch of this interactive experience and share their stories.

We would like to invite you to attend the online launch on the 2nd of March 2021 from 5 to 6.30 pm. Hear from the artists, adults and children involved in our community project. Children will then be invited to join and shape this adventure further over the following two weeks, culminating in a big virtual celebration on the 12th of March, from 4 to 5.30pm. 

Save both dates and register to attend!
