Horniman announce a £3.1m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), for a major redevelopment of two of their Galleries, and an innovative community engagement programme.
The Gallery redevelopment,
which will take three years to complete, will transform the way they display their Anthropology
designated collection of national and international importance bringing more
than 3,000 artefacts from around the world to public view, many for the first
time. It follows their three-year Collections, People, Stories review which revealed the strength and depth
of the 80,000-strong collection.
This is an exciting boost to the cultural map in Lewisham and LEAN are looking forward following the transformation over the coming months and years.
