Our history is for everyone.
It's also about everyone...
In 2019 we'll be bringing you 'Our Home Too' thanks to a very generous grant from Amesbury Area Board. ‘Our Home Too is an exhibition about immigration and how it's made Wiltshire the way it is from the Stone Age to the 1960s. It will be mostly a handling collection with lots of associated activities and demonstrations. We'll be putting on public displays and talks locally in the Library and History Centre but we're also looking for schools, residential settings and other groups in the Amesbury area that might be interested in having a free visit with this collection.
As part of the project we'll be working with a people who
are suffering from social isolation or loneliness. In four sessions we're hoping to take a group of strangers and form a working team to deliver part of the project. It'll be basic training in the
art of making museums happen! And, more importantly, a chance for people to make some friends along the way...
We’re very lucky to have some great partners on this, including:
Amesbury History Centre
