BESPOKE TRAINING – Hackney Archives

As part of a week of training and workshops we are offering a FREE Archives Training session  at Hackney Archives Dalston Lane, London E8 3BQ (just above CLR James Library by Dalston Junction Station) on Thursday 25 April 6pm – 730pm.

The head archivist Elizabeth Green will be showing us how archives and primary sources can bring history alive and we will be looking at documents relevant to our research into Mary Wollstonecraft and  our Heritage project

BLUE CIRCLE OF DISSENT

a Marriage Settlement from mid 1700s (a shocking document to the modern eye), minutes from the Unitarian Church where Mary Wollstonecraft was a parishioner, local maps and more.

 

This training deepens understanding of how lives were led and sometimes leads to new discoveries. (e.g previously we have discovered household accounts which told us what was eaten “Upstairs” by the “master” and what was eaten “Downstairs” by the servants).

Places are very limited due to the nature of the session so please email us at unityarts@hotmail.co.uk or complete the form below to book a place

STEWY – Mary Wollstonecraft’s Birthday

Keep your eyes peeled! The Blue Circle Of Dissent Events are happening!

The National Heritage Lottery Fund is supporting us as we host a series of events to celebrate the

260th birthday of Mary Wollstonecraft on 27 & 28 April 2019!

Author of A Vindication Of The Rights Of Woman and member of the congregation at Newington Green Unitarian Church (now New Unity) Wollstonecraft is also to be recognised in Newington Green with a statue.

Mary On The Green are working to make this happen!

The street artist STEWY is allowing us use of his iconic stencil of Hackney Heroine Mary Wollstonecraft.

And here is a short documentary about STEWY’S work and the Newington Green stencil.
