LEARNING & PARTICIPATION OFFICER
Kayleigh Edun works with a range of audiences including schools, colleges, universities and families. She develops and delivers school sessions, holiday activities and special events for Charlton House and the Museum Collections & Archive that bring the heritage of Greenwich to life.
The Princess Alice disaster is Britain’s worst recorded inland water incident and is a significant Victorian human interest story to me which has largely been forgotten in modern memory. Our rare photograph from 1878 illustrates the scale of the tragedy.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH OFFICER
Helen works with communities across the Borough of Greenwich to bring to life the Museum Collections & Archive of the Royal borough of Greenwich. Currently Helen is delivering a community art project working with the natural history collection and local arts practitioners to share skills and explore the diverse histories in Greenwich. You can find out more about this project by clicking this link.
The natural history collection ranges from the wonderfully ordinary, everyday sights you could expect to find in Greenwich, to far less ordinary creatures such as the armadillo. I love sharing the collection with the communities and finding significant connections to individual people.
