People’s History Museum will close on Sunday 31 December 2023 and re-open on Thursday 1 February 2024 so that it can carry out further work as part of the Welcome Project at PHM, which stems from the museum’s vision to be an exemplar for accessibility.Find out more
The Caribbean island, Barbuda, was severely impacted by Hurricane Irma in 2017.
Since then the government has pressurised Barbudans to leave the island so that lucrative private tourist resorts can be built. The local population is determined to stay put and defend their ways of life and right to live on their island.
In this exhibition you’ll hear from local Barbudans, describing their visions of how the island should be recovered and why they choose to stay, despite cripplingly slow recovery programmes.
Suitable for all ages.
Please note the museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Part of PHM’s programme exploring migration. Following an open call for submissions, the 2020-2021 community exhibitions programme was selected by a Community Programme Team made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration.
