After five years of fun, exciting and powerful creative projects, the Voices Through Time programme is going out with a bang! We’re creating an immersive, site-specific, audio-visual installation for Coram’s main building.

The installation will champion the thoughts, feelings and perspectives of young people in care today, whilst revealing the experiences of those who lived in the Foundling Hospital – Britain’s first children’s home – in the 1700s and 1800s.

We want your help to create it!

Across four workshops in June and July 2024, a group of care-experienced young people will help develop the concept for the immersive installation and create artwork to feature in it.

We’ve commissioned The Liminal Space to create this experience. They’ve worked with some of the biggest museums and cultural venues in London, including the Barbican, V&A, and Museum of the Home. So, whatever we create, it will be impressive!

You don’t have to be good at visual art to take part in this project. You might make some graphics, photography, poetry or something you hadn’t even imagined! We’ll work that out once the concept has been finalised!


Location: The workshops will take place at Coram, 41 Brunswick Square, WC1N 1AZ.
