The Parlour launches at Coram Campus!

Published: Tuesday 14th September 2021

From Wednesday 15 September you can visit our brand new exhibit, The Parlour: A Conversation Between Past & Present, which is part of our Voices Through Time programme.

Step into the past with our interactive installation at Coram, which invites examination of – and response to – an expanding online timeline of evidence and testimony.

Navigate through three centuries of the story of care, with stories from the Coram archive and our recent work with care leavers and young people.

Be transported to an admissions day at the Foundling Hospital in our Brownlow Room, where mothers would have to enter a lottery to find out whether their child would be admitted into the care of the Foundling Hospital.

Every three months we will feature the recently uncovered story of an individual foundling, beginning with Ann Watson, one of the known black children in the care of the Foundling Hospital.

There will be an opportunity for visitors to record their response to the exhibition and contribute their thoughts to our on-going story of care.

Visit The Parlour at Coram's campus.

Free admission, 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.
