The British Museum does community group freebies where booked groups can go see exhibition previews, add-ons and get the punters in any which way into interest forums.
If that every borough had a centre for older people to hang out. What with celebs pushing for dementia awareness through dementia friends, chances are that every borough will remind itself to prioritise seniors and their cultural needs/ preferences/ favourites from a nucleus hub. Never happened pre London 2012 and the Claremont Project Islington grows into the one to model on.
Claremonters went along to the British Museum’s dead and alive or rather “Ancient Lives” all about scanning dead gyptians and probing their tummy contents through the mummification rags courtesy of Samsung technology. Beautiful moving images and some interactive buttons. Lots of pathology about rotten teeth and abcessi. I do believe I watched an anthropology programme on Sky last week all about one young Egyptian and her abcess.
Well that was worth the 75 minutes bus journey each way.
