Abolition 200

The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council, Awards for All, and 24 Hour Museum have joined in partnership to announce their support of the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade with the launch of the website Abolition200. This will act as the cultural sector's premier website for news of national bicentenary events and activities. Going live on March 19, and managed via the 24 Hour Museum database, the MLA-commissioned site allows you to find out about abolition-related events taking place in local areas. It offers a searchable database of events, news stories and has a special area for teachers and schools. It also highlights funding opportunities for groups that wish to apply for National Lottery money to help fund their commemorative events and activities
