really excited. There's just over a week to go until the opening of ‘We
are the lions: an exhibition commemorating the Grunwick strike 1976-78’
– and it’s going to be amazing.
exhibition wouldn’t have happened without your support. So we hope
you’ll come and visit it at Brent Museum & Archives in Willesden,
where it will run from October 19th 2016 to March 26th 2017. Opening
times and details are here.
get a chance to explore archive images and records of the strike,
immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the 70s and have some fun creating
your own responses to Grunwick in the creative area (kids welcome
too!). We also have the original Grunwick Strike Committee banner on
display with its highly unusual design – see if you can spot its
influence throughout the look of the exhibition.
don’t forget, if you like what you see, we’re also offering a free
travelling exhibition to schools and community groups. Drop us an email
at firstname.lastname@example.org to book it for a venue near you.
As if all this isn’t enough, November will also see us run two huge Grunwick events:
2nd Nov: Race, Class and Solidarity
- A screening of the ‘Great Grunwick Strike’ film at SOAS university
with a panel discussion afterwards. No need to register - just turn up!
They’re both free and open to all, which means they’ll fill up fast – so make sure you don’t miss out.
we’re working to get the formal permissions sorted so that we can get
our amazing community murals out into the streets of Brent – it’s taking
a little longer than planned but don’t worry, you’ll be the first to
hear about the great unveiling.
See you at a Grunwick-themed event soon!
