Lunar Campfires Residents

We believe in order to move towards collaboration and inclusivity in cultural organisations, we need to open conversations.

Want to shape these open conversations?

Our Lunar Campfires series will engage the whole community.

We’re looking for young people to help plan, organise and shape this series of events that fuel conversation around issues on race and representation in the heritage sector and the impact this has on our world today.
