The Horniman Museum and Gardens in Forest Hill has been working on a new World Gallery, celebrating what it means to be human. It will include more than 3,000 objects from around the world, works of art and fun things to touch, play with and even smell. The World Gallery will be a place of inspiration for visitors of all ages and will promote tolerance, respect and empathy.
We now need to raise £30,000 to help create the gallery which will open in June 2018. We have launched a crowdfunding campaign www.crowdfunder.co.uk/worldgallery which has got off to a great start but we still really need your help to make this a success!
If you or your children love visiting the Horniman, please support us at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/worldgallery and receive some unique rewards, from personalised poems by the Horniman walrus to private tours of the new gallery, as well as a public acknowledgement of your support.
Please share the link www.crowdfunder.co.uk/worldgallery with all your friends, family, neighbours and everyone you know who loves the Horniman, and help us reach our target of £30,000 by 31 October.
Thank you to so many of you who have already supported and shared the World Gallery crowdfunding appeal online. We really appreciate your support.
