Bucks County Museum is planning to create new displays that represent our local people and landscapes, including the stories of communities then and now.  We have secured National Lottery Heritage Fund investment over 3 years to deliver a project celebrating Bucks Heroes and the project has now received permission to start from 16 October 2020.  Feeding into our larger gallery re-development programme, Bucks Heroes will collate and curate representative content, enhancing our collections and the stories we tell.

Through Bucks Heroes we aim to collect, include and celebrate hidden stories of extraordinary deeds from across our communities.  Working with under-served communities across Bucks, we will find and share hidden and under-represented stories about ordinary individuals, our everyday ‘heroes’, who have done extraordinary things, and their contribution to the wider history of Bucks.  These stories will be told through new displays, events and on gallery, in person interpretation, family and adult activities, digital interpretation and an exhibition.  The content collected through this project will help ensure that the redevelopment of our permanent galleries is more representative; telling an inclusive story of Bucks and our communities, which will transform the Museum offer.  The project will deliver a programme of engagement designed to empower community groups to take part in our project, share their stories and enrich our Museum, with the aim of building sustained relationships and ongoing community co-production for future Museum services and programmes.

Closing date for applications Thursday 26 November at 9 am.

Interviews to be held on Wednesday 3 December – interviews are likely to be held on zoom but may be on site at the Museum, depending on the regional situation and government rules at that time.
