As part of the Stories of the World: London project, this weekend, we hosted the Horniman Museum's first youth conference. Challenging academics from across the UK and Europe, more than 100 young people came together to discuss the ways they are represented and how cultural organisations engage with them.
Following the Comprehensive Spending Review the Horniman has been awarded four years of ring-fenced funding by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
The DCMS is considering, as part of its business plan, the possible transfer of responsibility for the Horniman to another body but no decision has yet been taken.
October 2010 was Big Draw month. We celebrated with two events on 16 and 23 October, with around 200 visitors taking part. The Big Draw is an annual initiative for drawing, connecting visitors with museum and gallery collections, and urban and rural spaces.
