Exhibition HOPE officially opens this evening!

Since November 2017 Sheila has been working with a group of people who regularly work, volunteer and play at Battersea Arts Centre to co-curate and display a collection of objects and ephemera from the Wandsworth Collection (which BAC are now custodians of). The Exhibition is a scratch - a first go at seeing what such an activity means... to the building, to those involved, to the people who visit... Give us your feedback! Let us know what you think!

6 Feb - 10 Mar


BAC Moving Museum & Sheila Ghelani

Journey with us through the Old Town Hall building as we explore what ‘Hope’ means to us today, using stories and objects from our borough’s past.

This is a BAC Moving Museum Scratch project, using the Wandsworth Collection to see how our past might speak to the future.

Pick up a map from the Battersea Arts Centre foyer to follow our trail.

Exhibition HOPE is created by Joanna, Federica, Lainie, Zeba, Lucy, Bethany, Sofia, Sheila, Peter W and Peter H, who all have a relationship with Battersea Arts Centre, ranging from being regular volunteers on our HLF heritage programmes, attendees of the Create Course, the Elders Dance Class, the Young Producer Programme, to being a member of staff team.
