‘Our Heritage’ – Signing off

‘Our Heritage’ Project

The Open Centre and Heritage Lottery came together for a brand new exhibition and learning resource entitled ‘Our Heritage’.  The exhibition explored issues of faith, culture and the legacy of multicultural Britain. It was housed in the upstairs gallery of Derby Market Hall, the project is working with schools, community groups and artists, celebrating the history of Derby’s multicultural heritage through a series of films and images.

We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to St Martins School for all their help and support during our Gallery 5 exhibition. We have received lots of positive feedback regarding the exhibition and are looking into future projects which can explore these ideas further.

Would you like to explore ‘Our Heritage’ further…?

If your school or business are interested in having a similar exhibition, we have a mobile version of the exhibition which can be set up and utilised as an additional teaching resource in your setting. Please contact The Open Centre for more information—01332 360737 or view the ‘Our Heritage’ page.
