What is the Bucks Heroes project all about?
We are working with under-served communities around Buckinghamshire to collate and curate stories from the local people and landscape. Bucks Heroes project is about celebrating ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things making them everyday heroes, who have contributed to the history of Bucks.
Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this project will collaborate with the local community to showcase our many heroes through exciting and unusual activities in the new Discover Bucks People gallery once opened later in 2021 and online. We are looking for local heroes and would love to hear your story or that of your family or friends. If you would like to nominate an individual from Bucks who is a local hero please get in touch with our Bucks Heroes Programme Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also currently converting our ground floor temporary exhibition room into a flexible community and learning space to be used by schools, community groups and visitors while they go round the new galleries.
The project will create a programme of gallery and online activities around the Bucks heroes themes, support community events and present a Bucks Heroes Exhibition in 2023. Watch this space for more news and What’s On for forthcoming events.
We have a fantastic summer line up for you, from Superhero Mondays, Delicious Dinosaur Tuesdays, Pterosaur Swoop Wednesdays, Terrific Triceratops Thursdays, Sewing Fridays to Dress like a Dino Saturdays. We have something for everyone! And don’t forget to visit our DINOSAURS UNCOVERED exhibition while you’re here!
