Changemakers - A Celebration of Lasting Change in Haringey
- Until 19 January 2020
Inspired by Black History Month 2019 and black CHANGEMAKERS of the borough, this series of photographic portraits by Agenda Brown of Visual Marvelry™ brings together CHANGEMAKERS from different generations.
It is a visual record of those influential in culture, education, sport and community activism in the UK.
Black history influences us all year round - it is too vast to be contained in one month a year. Our CHANGEMAKERS are the new black history makers of today, making history every day.
Location: Coleraine Gallery
The Land Beneath Our Feet
- 28 July 2019 to 23 February 2020
Enjoy our exhibition exploring the fascinating story of the 400 year old Dorset Survey of Tottenham and Wood Green and see the beautiful pictorial map created from it. Affectionately known as the 'upside-down map' (north is at the bottom and south at the top), it is the earliest known map of Tottenham and Wood Green, showing how the area was in 1619.
