The Museum of All Brent Life

Local memories, stories and myths curated in libraries across the borough

The Museum of All Brent Life is a living museum created in ten Brent neighbourhoods in collaboration with its six Council-run and four community libraries. Each of the ten Museum 'wings' will take the visitor on a creative journey exploring all that is unique, beautiful, complex and downright strange on this voyage through a living collection of people, stories and experiences.

Through an open call-out, we are commissioning ten artists to work with each of our libraries, neighbourhoods and communities to uncover, explore and celebrate our borough. The commissions will draw new visitors to our Museum and take them to parts of the borough that they may not have explored before.

We encourage artists who live in the borough, or who have a historic relationship with the borough, to apply but wherever you are from, we want to work with exciting artists with great ideas that are fully immersed in Brent life.
