Between The Lines

438E2FEE-FFCE-4ECF-9182-77299793153F-15326-000009E0C97B7CBA

 

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

The National Theatre set to host debate on homelessness in the UK 🇬🇧

Thousands of ‘hidden homeless’ people sleep in dangerous conditions in London every night, a damning report has found.

As many as 12,500 people are forced to stay with strangers and sleep on public transport every night in the capital, leaving them at serious risk of assault, according to a study compiled by the London Assembly.

But London’s ‘hidden homeless’, who are often not recognised in official figures as they find shelter in places such as illegal squats, are not receiving vital support from councils, the report added.

It found the only one in five people aged 16 to 24 seek help from local councils.

I never looked back


There was once a time where you left school and got a job for life. These days,

many of us move around from post to post in the same industry, while others

change careers completely. Five people who took the plunge and tried something new share their stories

 

From Courtroom To Kitchen

IMG_0565Nisha Katona is the brains behind the “twisted Indian” eatery Mowgli Street Food, which has four branches.
The 47-year-old spent 20 years as a family and child protection barrister before opening her first restaurant on Bold Street, Liverpool, in 2014.
She had spent years building her passion for food before quitting her day job.
“I was working as a barrister and all the while I was teaching other lawyers and judges about cooking at my home and our local farm shop kitchen.
“I started a YouTube channel as I am evangelical about how simple and healthy Indian food is and how different eating at home is to what we see in the curry houses.”

 

Karen Beddow Qualified Litigation Lawyer Found Her Passion For Travel

The Key 🔑 To A Balanced Family Life

IMG_0567

Karen Beddow felt she was sacrificing time with her young family while working 12-hour days as a property litigation lawyer.
She now runs a family travel blog from her home in Wirral, Merseyside.
“As well as being a lawyer I sat on two boards – one as a non-executive director of a housing company and as chairman of the trustee board at a care home,” she said.
“There was one particular day where I went to the office at 7.30am, spent my lunch hour on an hour-long phone call, and ran out the office at 7pm to get to a board meeting.
“I got home at 9pm and was still making dinner at 9.30pm. I then sat down and wrote three blog posts, just because that’s what I loved doing and how I switched off, odd as that sounds.”
