Engaging Libraries

We’ve some really exciting news. Following on from our success with ’The Final Party’ (2017), we’ve secured funding to expand and continue with our project around death. We’re part of a consortium that won a £50,000 grant from the highly competitive Engaging Libraries Programme.

In our new project ‘Tickets for the Afterlife’, the attitudes of people in Redbridge towards death will be investigated in a wide-ranging research partnership. We’ll build on our work as a ‘Death Positive’ Library service and will work with Kirklees in Yorkshire and Newcastle in the North East to investigate if people’s attitudes to death change depending on where they live, their cultural backgrounds or both. You’ll be able to take part in interactive installations, death cafés, panel debates and workshops as part of the project.

Gareth Morley, Vision’s Head of Culture & Libraries said: “I’m delighted we’ve been selected for additional funding to develop and deliver this ground breaking and valuable project. Vision has been leading the way for the last few years and we are proud that the UK’s first death positive library service started in Redbridge.

Tickets for the Afterlife will enable residents to engage with the sensitive subjects of death, dying and bereavement within the safe and supportive environment of their local library and take an active role in shaping future research in this area. This bold, creative and ambitious project demonstrates the power of libraries to engage the public on a range of issues facing society, particularly those that are challenging and difficult.”

So look out for our exciting and thought-provoking programme of events in the New Year!

Almost half of all UK library services applied to the Engaging Libraries programme, which is run by The Carnegie UK Trust, Wellcome and the Wolfson Foundation. It brings vital research projects at universities into the heart of local communities, using libraries to encourage and share learning.

Friday update: There is still no sign of Jasmine and friends. She has never been seperated from her mummy, Bella before and is probably very distressed. Bella is sad and is clearly missing having not her daughter by her side. Jasmine has a medical condition that requires careful management, and we are concerned that her needs might not be getting met. If you could share this post to help spread the word and help get Jasmine back home to her mummy. Thank you

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This was one of the hardest escape rooms I’ve been to! It was so much fun having 5 rooms to explore for testing clues and hidden messages. A great experience which was both challenging and very rewarding. Hosts were also attentive and ready to guide us when we struggled." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
