150th Year Anniversary Project
Celebrate the Life and Legacy of Dr David Livingstone: Discover, Engage, and Connect with the Birthplace Project in Scotland during our year-long series of events to celebrate this 150th anniversary.
Future Careers Project
This project was a partnership between David Livingstone Birthplace (DLB), Museum Galleries Scotland (MGS), Developing the Young Workforce, and David Livingstone Memorial Primary.
Over the course of six workshops, the DLB Learning Team welcomed the pupils from Mr Burns’ primary 7 class into the museum to get behind-the-scenes access to the museum. The workshops introduced pupils to the varied job roles of the sector and provided opportunities to practise heritage and transferable skills.
The "Power Play" Youth Engagement Project
The ‘Power Play’ Youth Engagement Project, created by David Livingstone Birthplace, supports local young people & offer opportunities to increase their skills, confidence, employability, and sense of belonging within their communities.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
