The Lost Workforce

The Lost Workforce

This project followed on from the work of Contour and Cream and funded by the Local Heritage Initiative, Awards for All and the Howard Watson Symington Memorial Charity. It was led by Harborough District Council Arts Development, working with a group of local teachers (the Market Harborough Local History Group), and performance artist Elaine Pantling using the ‘Contour and Cream’ performance to create Learning packs for schools.

All local schools were given copies of these packs which included a DVD of the Contour and Cream performance.  In addition Leicestershire Museums developed two inspiring collections boxes of handling material.
