David Livingstone Birthplace

Projects

We are engaged with a number of exciting projects with our Partners. If you would like to get involved please e-mail info@dltrust.uk.

Project Thumbnail RSPB & COP26

We partnered with RSPB on their Giving Nature a Home Glasgow project working with a group of young people to design, develop and deliver a series of events themed around the climate and nature crises in the lead up to COP26.

Project Thumbnail Hidden Histories of the River Clyde Project

Glasgow was a hub of the Scottish and European Enlightenment. Later, it was the second city of the British Empire. Its global intellectual, cultural and economic network, together with its industry, shaped the River Clyde, and its peoples and local environment.

Project Thumbnail Exchange: Community-Led Collections Research Project

We are currently working with National Museums Scotland who has been awarded a grant by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) with Royal Museums Greenwich. The grant will enable organisations around the UK to work with community groups and explore experiences of empire, migration, and life in Britain through their collections.

Dlb Project Icon R1 David Livingstone Birthplace

The Birthplace Project transformed our museum. The museum is now a vibrant visitor attraction, telling the story of Scottish explorer, missionary, and abolitionist David Livingstone. The Project means that the museum can now deliver learning and public programmes to support schools, community regeneration and international partnerships.

Project Thumbnail Highlighting Different Perspectives with the Scotland Malawi Partnership

We commissioned the Scotland Malawi Partnership to record talking head films, covering multiple perspectives on Livingstone’s complicated legacy. Over 30 films can be viewed on a touchscreen in the museum’s Legacy Space, where themes relating to the lasting impact of Livingstone's life and work are discussed.

Youth Open Day Icon R1 The "Power Play" Youth Engagement Project

The ‘Power Play’ Youth Engagement Project, created by David Livingstone Birthplace, will support local young people and offer opportunities to increase their skills, confidence, employability, and sense of belonging within their communities.
