Summer events at Hackney Museum
New Maths in History course for adult learners at Hackney Museum in partnership with Hackney Learning Trust
From Wednesday 7 June, 9.30am-11.30am
What do objects in the museum tell us about the past? How did people in Hackney live their lives? What changes did they make over their lives? Did they have decisions to make about how they spent their money? How are our lives the same and how are our lives different?
Come along and have fun learning maths through exploring Hackney Stories and sharing your own. If you would like to know more information please get in touch with Sai Wong on 07768526855 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Xenia: Women Learning English Together
Women from all walks of life are invited to come along and meet, connect and learn in our next Xenia meetup for women. English language learners and women who are confident in English will participate in activities together, discovering the area, talking and forming relationships. At each meetup we use a different theme to enable conversations to flow and friendships to form.
Are you learning English? Come and make a friend, practice English, learn new things, and share your culture. Do you speak fluent English? Come and make a friend, practice whatever you want to, learn new things, and make London a more welcoming place. You are welcome to bring your children.
Race, Place, and Photography in Hackney
Thursday 22 June and Thursday 29 June, 6pm-7.30pm
Come and share your photographs, memories or personal items that you associate with home, arrival and belonging. Find out how your family photographs and memories of celebrations, festivals, events and everyday life in Hackney can help shape our understanding of our borough's rich histories. Together with local artist Ekua McMorris we will look at how different communities have shaped Hackney starting with African and African Caribbean experiences. In partnership with Hackney Learning Trust.
