In February 2014, all the Community Fieldworkers got together for an end of project celebration and exhibition.
It was fantastic to see the variety of work and for everyone to see each other again. Many friendships and new connections have been made during the project.
Through the Community Fieldworker Project, we hoped to capture a glimpse of the effect that museum objects can have when they are given consideration and time to work their magic on our thoughts and imagination. The variety of work made during the project just shows the unique and individual responses they generate and the ways they can make us look anew at the world around us.
The museum is now documenting the whole project in our database. The work made by the Fieldworkers therefore directly contributes to the stored knowledge that the museum holds for future generations.
We hope future researchers might see how, in 2013, the Horniman's collections and objects were being used and appreciated by people in our local community.
