Common Ground @ Ipswich Museum

Get ready Ipswich Museum, Common Ground are coming…

Over Summer and Autumn 2021, a group of local young people will be working in collaboration with an artist and community heritage leader to co-design and co-create a virtual space in which to explore and share their own heritage stories and those of local heroes. This could involve telling the stories of the town that might not usually be shouted about: for example, Suffolk’s black history and Ipswich’s Windrush story.

The project will tie in with the museum’s Power of Stories exhibition (which is already officially Very Good, by the way) while centring local history at the heart of it, helping to meet the need of local communities, keep important stories alive and engage a wider audience. #MuseumGoals.
