This film documents the Object Journeys: celebrating the work of families project. The community partners involved in the project also consider how everyday objects they own remind them of and connect them to their families.

This Object Journeys project is a collaboration between eight London-based community partners and the British Museum. The project group explored the similarities and differences inherent between families across time and across cultural boundaries and they helped create a new display at the Museum which celebrates the idea of how families support and depend upon each other for love, care and guidance. This display opens on May 24th2018 in the British Museum’s Wellcome Gallery.
