Are you a local resident with strong ties to your local community? Are you interested in our history? Do you want to see a museum representing the amazing social reformers and history of Somers Town and St Pancras areas past and present? Then, we are looking for you!
We are starting a Steering Group made up of people from our local communities. This group will help us reach the most people that we possibly can, by talking about the museum with their family, friends and neighbours. The group will help create and promote the consultation activities, working with artists and museum staff to do so. They will give their ideas about the museum’s design, and ask other locals what they think.
The role involves attending regular Steering Group meetings at which you will give your ideas and help make decisions. Outside of these meetings, you’ll act as an ambassador for the museum, spreading the word, and helping to organise collaborations and events.
In return you will get any training you might decide as a group (e.g. public speaking, engaging people) and the opportunity to be part of the exciting process of building a museum from scratch, including making your voice heard in terms of what should be in it. We will cover travel expenses and of course coffee, tea and cake will be on us!
We are looking for local residents with close ties to their community and a passion for history and representation.
You must be willing to represent the museum and to speak with people about it in an engaging way. You can be any age (18+), of any gender, and do not need any specific experience, education or training to take part.
This will begin in September but we are pleased to meet people to discuss from now on.
We have dates where you can meet us informally.
15th July 4-6pm Story Garden NW1 Yurt
Friday 16th July Chalton St Market 12-2pm Outside Pinner
5th August 11- 3pm Phoenix Road, NW1
