Location

Situation

Latin and Classics is largely associated with privilege and wealth, and very many children and adults have no opportunity to learn about the ancient world and its languages, and may feel intimidated by the topics.

Solution

We are founding a new local learning space, which will offer a range of free workshops, courses, exhibitions and more to all ages in the community. We will also house a large lending library and many original and replica artefacts!
