An exciting new project plans to convert the former London office of the African National Congress in Penton Street, Islington into a Centre of Memory and Learning about the anti-apartheid solidarity movement. The project has been launched by The Liliesleaf Trust UK, working with the AAM Archives Committee and other groups. It has won support from the GLA’s Good Growth Fund and is working to raise matched funding to convert the building into an exhibition and educational centre. Whilst building plans have been on hold because of the Coronavirus crisis, education and community engagement is ongoing. For example, as part of Islington Borough’s Black History Month 2020 celebration and supporting learning from and about diverse and inclusive histories, the Trust created two family craft and design activities that invite design ideas for a new community learning garden for the borough.
