The Dacorum Heritage Trust is an accredited museum of the area of Dacorum. Unlike a traditional museum, we’re based in a museum store in Berkhamsted. It means we must think creatively and offer imaginative ways for the general public to access the museum’s collection and the heritage stories we can tell.
The aim for the ‘Fireworks and Festivals’ project is to gather and exhibit new stories, reminisce about local events and create artworks inspired by the theme. The project is to have an emphasis on positivity and celebration, especially after what has been a difficult period for many people.
We hoped that the project would give us a great opportunity to build new partnerships with other faith groups and cultural organisations. Allowing us to invite these groups to share their festival heritage with us and contribute oral histories to our collections.
If you’d be interested, please do contact us on 01442 879525 or firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange to talk us about the project.
