Come along to the International Slavery Museum and join us as we hear the untold stories of enslaved people and learn about historical and contemporary slavery. All ages welcome.
International Slavery Museum, 11am, Sunday 29th March 2020, Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool
The International Slavery Museum highlights the international importance of slavery, both in a historic and contemporary context. Working in partnership with other museums with a focus on freedom and enslavement, the museum provides opportunities for greater awareness and understanding of the legacy of slavery today.
It is located in Liverpool's Albert Dock, at the centre of a World Heritage site and only yards away from the dry docks where 18th century slave trading ships were repaired and fitted out.
Along with the permanent exhibitions we will visit the "Challenging histories: Collecting new artworks" display, which is a collection of contemporary works relating to transatlantic slavery.
Meet at the entrance, no need to let us know in advance. We will head to the cafe afterwards for lunch or just drinks, and of course a debrief on what we thought of the exhibitions.
Information about how to get to the museum can be found on their website.
