Sustainability Project Sharing Day

28th March 2018, Kelmscott Manor, Lechlade, GL7 3HJ

Kelmscott Manor invites museums from around the area to come and find out more about their Arts Council England Resilience funded sustainability project and the Manor's plans, and to hear about what they have learnt.

In a time of political and economic uncertainty and an ever increasing demand on resources, Kelmscott Manor is looking for innovative ways to increase its profile and become more sustainable so that the Manor and its heritage will continue to attract visitors and be maintained for future generations. The day will feature talks about the project and also a talk by a professional fundraiser with a specialism in museums.

Lunch will be provided and a tour of the beautiful property will also be offered. The manor, famed for their cream teas, has been described as an 'utterly beautiful slice of heaven', and this is a day not to be missed! 

Schools & museums can make a documentary using free resources from 'Into Film'

Into Film is a film education charity that puts film at the heart of the educational and personal development of children and young people aged 5-19 across the UK.

Taking the lead from the BBC Two series, Britain's Greatest Generation, Into Film, BBC Learning, the BFI and the British Council invite you to explore and commemorate life in the UK 1930-60 with their documentary filmmaking project.

Using their free curriculum-linked resources and more, you can help 7-11 year olds delve into the history of their local area. The project will see them recording the stories and memories of the wartime generation by interviewing older members of their community.They will then produce short documentaries by pairing those interviews with curated archive film clips from the era before uploading their finished films to this website.
