This half term, Gunnersbury Park Museum played host to a brilliant Together We Create photography project, inviting 12 young people to spend two days documenting the building before it closes for restoration.

Working with Gunnersbury’s education team, Together We Create showed budding local photographers how to use iPads, practicing different camera techniques and reviewing images for display when the museum reopens.

Lisa D’Agostino, Education & Lifelong Learning Officer from Gunnersbury Park Museum, said: “We were really blown away by how good the photos were and we loved how they were displayed so imaginatively. I think the young people definitely caught the spirit of Gunnersbury!”

Together We Create founder Sarah Hoyle said: “This was a unique chance to mark the end of one era and the beginning of another at Gunnersbury Park Museum. What better way to show this than through the eyes of local young people, who are now more connected to the museum and more skilled to pursue their own photography projects? Thanks to everyone who took part – your enthusiasm and talent was inspirational.”

Gunnersbury Park Museum is the local history museum for the London Boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow. The museum’s role is to collect, keep safe and display the past and present history of its two boroughs.

Gunnersbury Park & Museum has been successful in securing Heritage and Parks for People Lottery funding to redevelop areas of the site. Although the museum will be closed for refurbishment from January 2015, there will still be a range of activities for all ages on offer.
