The MERL partners with many local community organisations using its collections to inspire creative projects which bring people together to promote well-being.

These displays showcase the wonderful creative and thought-provoking responses to themes and stories within The MERL collections by participants in this year’s amazing projects. They explore rebirth and new beginnings with Reading Assocation for the Blind, responses to the pandemic with Rising Sun Arts, and ‘Wilding Hearts and Healing’ through our work with Thriving Communities.
