Between the Lines is a workshop aimed at adult groups with learning disabilities.

It has been developed in partnership with Haringey Day Opportunities Service.

The session takes place in and around the public spaces, galleries and the Learning Centre.

Participants are introduced to the range of collections on display with particular focus on maps, sound recordings and printed books.

Each workshop is made up of a series of creative, tactile activities based around the themes of books and language, sound and movement and shapes and space.

Sessions are open-ended with participants having choice over the activities. A box is presented at the beginning of each session which includes a range of objects with each object signposting a different activity.

Participants choose an object that leads to a particular part of the Library and a related activity.

The workshop aims to provide a new experience for participants with learning disabilities and raise the confidence of both participants and support staff in engaging with historical collections.

Monday to Friday FREE
