People’s History Museum is one of four venues to have been shortlisted to win a visit from artist Janette Parris for this year’s Museum at Night weekend. Part of Culture24’s Connect10 competition, the winning venue will receive £2000 to work with Parris on a feature over the weekend, which this year takes place Thursday 15 – Saturday 17 May. Janette has had her work exhibited across the UK and is known for her contributions to Art on the Underground, often focusing on everyday experience through narrative and a range of formats. If successful, People’s History Museum will be hosting an event across its galleries retelling the history of ‘two centuries of politics and campaigning.’ Promising plenty of twists involving actors, comedians, tour guides and puppeteers, the event will debate possibilities such as what would have happened if Thatcher had lost the 1979 election or if suffragettes hadn’t succeeded in votes for women. Sound good to you? Voting is open now and will run until 5pm on Tuesday 28 January. All you need to do is click here.
