Heritage for health and wellbeing
Brent Museum and Archives are leading a community project, aiming to improve local people’s wellbeing by connecting to Brent’s astonishing heritage.
Led by Brent Museum and Archives, Being Brent presents a diverse programme of events and opportunities, throughout the year.
Look out for the Heritage Wellbeing Fund community projects kicking off soon, and Coal, Dole and Dinner Ladies immersive theatre in September 2021.
In the autumn, an Artist in Residence will join the project to create digital artworks with local significance over a 5-month residency.
Keep an eye out for the digital walking tour, Harlesden Trailblazers, which will celebrate local people and places.
There are exhibitions to explore on the second floor of The Library at Willesden Green:
- Roots and Changes: Gujarati Influences (closing 22 August)
- From the Ground Up (opening 6 September)
- Icons of Colour: Portraits of Brent's Change Makers (opening in December)
Being Brent is supported by a Steering Committee made up of local community members, Brent Council staff and a Brent councillor.
