East End Women’s Museum (EEWM) was established in 2015, the result of a positive protest against a ‘Jack the Ripper’ Museum. In their six years of existence, we have operated as a pop-up, working in collaboration with community and cultural partners around East London to research and share women’s stories through exhibitions, events and digital content.
EEWM is now opening a permanent home for their work, creating exciting opportunities to further connect with local communities, offer new programmes, and increase the scale and impact of their work.
The project, a result of a section 106 agreement with the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, is the fit out of a purpose-built museum and community collaboration space. Currently at concept design stage, the project is scheduled to go on site in 2022.
Through & Around were appointed in 2021 to manage the project through concept to delivery, including input into design team procurement and multiple stakeholder engagement strategy.
