Islington People’s Rights (IPR) is turning fifty!
Since IPR was founded in 1969, we have been committed to reducing poverty and the effects of debt in Islington. We’re celebrating this important work by charting the organisation’s development and achievements over the past five decades.
The main focus of the celebrations will be an exhibition at Islington Museum, open to the public during November and December 2019. The exhibition will tell the story of IPR against a backdrop of social welfare changes, highlighting the current necessity for the advice, casework and representation services IPR delivers.
The exhibition will be accompanied by drop in advice sessions, a series of walks, and even engage the youngest of visitors with the subject through storytelling sessions and activities for under 5s.
We’d like to include people’s stories in the exhibition. If you’ve had any involvement with IPR over the years and would like to take part in an oral history project, please get in touch.
Watch this space for further programme announcements, including an exclusive film screening and Q&A, and the IPR Annual General Meeting to be held on 12 November.
