Cabinet of Curiosities exhibition

A small selection of work collected as part of the Greenwich Cabinet of Curiosities project will soon be on display at the Greenwich Tourist Information Centre. The project, which ran for over a year, was a participatory arts project that involved a variety of forms of engagement with residents and visitors to the borough to investigate the psychogeography of place. 

The work on display showcases some of the research materials collected alongside responses to the project created by participants during workshops hosted by the Avant-Gardeners. The exhibition will also spotlight the work of photgrapher, Jack Goffe, who photographed the wharves in East Greenwich at a time when the area begins a period of radical change. Limited edition prints of Jack's works are available for sale through the Greenwich Tourist Information Centre and a price list for the works is available here

Images collected from the Greenwich Cabinet of Curiosities exhibition will be on display at the Greenwich Tourist Information Centre at the Old Royal Naval College from Tuesday 26 February - Sunday 24 March.

Opening Hours 10am - 5pm

Greenwich Cabinet of Curiosities Workshops

Time to take another look at the Royal Borough of Greenwich! We are running a programme of workshops across Greenwich to explore the local area to create materials for the Greenwich Cabinet of Curiosities. The workshops will be informal explorations of the borough where participants can join in mapping the borough, creating pages for the first of our fanzines celebrating the borough, have their tales recorded or just share a story or anecdote about the area. We would also love to see any photographs that people may have of the area or other artefacts that we could document for inclusion in the Greenwich Cabinet of Curiosities and the exhibition at the end of the year. All workshops are free and open to all
