Dream to Change the World: Curating the exhibition

Free talk by the curators of Islington Museum's current exhibition

Venue: Islington Museum
Dates: Thursday 16 July 2015
Times: 6.30-8pm
Admission: Free (no booking required)

The Dream to Change the World exhibition is based on material held at the George Padmore Institute. The bulk of the work in establishing the themes and choosing the images and artefacts to be shown was done by staff, volunteers and trustees of the GPI with invaluable help and advice from a number of experts.

Contributors to the meeting will include the GPI project archivist, volunteers and professionals involved in the mounting of the exhibition. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the significance and history of some of the exhibits.
