Help create an exhibition about women in Hackney

Hackney Museum and the East End Women's Museum are joining forces to tell the story of women who have led political and social change in Hackney.

2018 will be 100 years since British women first won the right to vote. To mark the occasion an exhibition exploring how women in Hackney have changed society both with and without the vote will be on display in Hackney Museum.

The two museums are holding an event for anyone who is interested to share their ideas and what they would like to see in the exhibition. People can also register their interest to join the team and create the exhibition. With a broad range of ways to get involved, no prior experience is needed – just enthusiasm.

They also will be recruiting for volunteers to help uncover hidden stories through exploring the borough’s rich archive collections.


The community forum will be held at Hackney Museum Thursday 21 July 6 – 7.30pm, no booking required.
