Poole Museum Creatives in the Community

Author: Richard Eastham

Date: Jan 14, 2023

We have been identified as one of four imaginative, inspiring, and socially engaged creative practitioners appointed to this project. Throughout 2023, we shall be working alongside the community to produce a mapping work that celebrates history and people. We shall be working with young people to explore themes of connection and interdependence.

The Poole Museum Community Engagement Officer, Erni Salleh-Pelham says: “This project is more than just capturing community voices and transforming it into an art form. It should be brave in challenging how we currently think about Poole’s maritime history and its relationship with the harbour, its people and the world but also situating the experiences of the local community at the forefront of the museum’s narrative about itself”
