Exhibitions - A Town called Home

2nd February until 30th June - Muriel Barker Gallery, Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, Grimsby DN31 1UZ - Admission is free - www.theequalitypractice.co.uk

Celebrating the stories of people from all over the world who have made Grimsby their home. The Equality Practice has announced a new exhibition, A Town Called Home, the first ever of its kind in North East Lincolnshire. Thanks to National Lottery players, the exhibition presents the stories of people from all over the world, who have come to Grimsby to live and work since the 1950s. It highlights the talent, the entrepreneurial spirit, the work ethic and the contribution that migrants have made, and continue to make to the community. The stories, often humorous, express how people felt when they first arrived; their first impressions, what they found unusual, and what they found really difficult. It allows the wider community, often used to hearing the denigration of the area, to see the town through fresh eyes. Jill Wilson and Tracy Todd, founders of The Equality Practice Ltd, were funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to manage this project. The free exhibition will launch to the public on Saturday 2nd February, from 10am until 4pm in the Muriel Barker Gallery at the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre, Alexander Dock, Grimsby. It will run until 30th June 2019. (Note: the museum is closed on Mondays.)
