Creative Journeys Essex
In 2016 Susan Langford, our Director was commissioned to support the setting up and delivery of the Creative Journeys project, run by Essex County Council with Anglia Ruskin University and funded through Arts Council England.
Grand Explorers brought grandparents and their grandchildren together once a year, over three years (from 2011-2013), to explore the secret life of the V&A Musuem of Childhood and its collections, creating wonderful puppets and stories and magical performances.
Mapping the Changes
As one of the five boroughs to host the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympics Games, Hackney is undergoing a period of change. In a series of oral history interviews, local residents shared the changes to their lives brought about by the Olympics.
Tower of London Project
In 2009, this was Magic Me’s first project working with grandparents and their grandchildren. Many of the families that took part then went on to do the Grand Explorers projects with the V&A Museum of Childhood.
