Become a Volunteer Community Curator at Calderstones.
Can you help unearth challenging connections between Calderstones and the transatlantic slave trade?
Thanks to players of The National Lottery, The Reader is embarking on a mission to make Calderstones Park a place of meaning making for the whole community.
Working with Laurence Westgaph, an expert on Liverpool’s connections to the slave trade, this exciting new project will dig deep into the Maritime history of the Grade II listed Mansion House in South Liverpool.
Over the course of 20 weeks, volunteers will work with Laurence and an artist to build on his existing research, and develop a new artistic display that will be displayed permanently in the Mansion House so that visitors to Calderstones can gain a fuller understanding of its heritage.
Workshops will take place once a week in the Mansion House. If you can help by volunteering then we’d love to hear from you, please get in touch with us on email@example.com before 31 March 2022.
We are particularly interested in hearing from people from a black, Asian or ethnic minority background, as we believe it is essential to have the perspective of people of colour at the heart of this work.
