What was it like to live in Roman Greenwich 2000 years ago?
Who were the Romans?
Following the success of Sailing To Britain, this year Greenwich Theatre embarks on a new cultural history project - London World City. Led by Greenwich Theatre and Greenwich Dance, with Greenwich Heritage Centre, Greenwich Community College and Greenwich and Lewisham Young People's Theatre as project partners, this is a new project designed to celebrate, exhibit and animate the borough's Roman history and is part of the national Stories of the World programme for the Cultural Olympiad.
With performance opportunities to be announced in early Autumn, Greenwich Heritage Centre is now looking for young people between the ages of 16-24 to volunteer for stage one of the project, Culture shock? This is your chance to explore and interpret Roman culture in Greenwich and to tell others by curating an exhibition on our Roman history and heritage and its influences on our lives today using the Heritage Centre’s collections and Roman influenced contemporary fashion.
