'DREAM TO CHANGE THE WORLD' COMES TO ITS END AT ISLINGTON MUSEUM

Saturday August 29th saw the end of the GPI's 'Dream To Change the World' exhibition which had a successful run at Islington Museum from May 22nd.

Over the course of its three month display, all at the GPI were encouraged, humbled and inspired by the range of visitors to the exhibition.

We were also delighted with the fact that so many people took the time to write such positive comments in the visitor's book!

The GPI's 'Dream To Change the World' exhibition is now in its final weeks and the last of three concomitant public outreach events takes place on Thursday 20th August at Islington Museum, 245 St. John Street London EC1V 4NB.
