Join us on 15 July for a full-day creative workshop to explore the heritage of Union Chapel’s Sunday School.

About this event

On 15 July we will explore the role that local people and organisations can play in creating, capturing and sharing the stories of the Sunday School’s past, present and future.

Union Chapel is planning a substantial refurbishment of the Sunday School to open the space back to the community. The project will include an interpretation panel or installation piece to showcase the heritage of Union Chapel and its local community, its history and help visitors make sense of the building around them and to connect past stories with local stories of today and the future.

This workshop will bring people to explore how we can develop a creative and inclusive approach to designing the physical interpretation object. This will be a hands-on workshop where participants come together to learn more about the Sunday School’s building and ethos, to explore the space and what makes it special, and to work together to co-design and test ideas for the interpretation piece and potential associated programme of activities.

This free workshop is designed and led by national design charity The Glass-House Community Led Design, working in collaboration with Union Chapel. Lunch will be provided by The Margins Project, which offers a range of services to support people facing homelessness, risk of homelessness and crisis in Islington.
