Museum shortlisted for The National Lottery Awards
The International Slavery Museum has reached the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards 2009 in the Best Heritage Project category.
The museum is the only project in Liverpool and the North West in this category through to the semi-finals and is competing against nine other projects for the chance to win the award, decided by a public vote.
The awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery funded project, recognising the difference that those projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK.
Since it opened in August 2007, the International Slavery Museum has set out to be a campaigning museum, exploring historical and contemporary aspects of slavery and addressing the many legacies of a trade that still has a profound impact today.
The museum is an international hub for resources on human rights issues, both past and present, and actively campaigns against racism and discrimination.
