AboutFollowing Footsteps will be a live research project, the motivation for this return to the town of Benedict's birth being the opportunity to investigate the landscape of his family history. Specifically this will be an opportunity to revisit the spaces once inhabited by his grandfather Laurence A. Hislam (1909-1966, pacifist, political activist and artisan), using news clippings, family stories and local research to navigate the town.
A presentation of the project will take place on Friday 11th July at 6.30 8.30pm. All welcome.
