Community Projects

Community co-production was a foundation stone of Fenland Lives & Land. Sub-projects between the museums of the Fens Museum Partnership and a wide variety of community groups from across the fenland region were key to the production of our four exhibitions and film. These projects have shaped the way the exhibitions/film were made and created a large proportion of content for them.

Here is a taster of some of the things we got up to.
