Enter a dramatic installation of painted papyrus scrolls and discover local life stories told in symbols. Suspended from the ceiling, the scrolls float within a soundscape interspersed with the voices of their makers, telling the everyday stories of resilience, joy and heartache that is at the centre of all our lives. You can also create your own life story scrolls in the exhibition space or at home.

696 is a Horniman project which aims to platform the cutting edge of south London’s music scene, championing music genres that have been disproportionately affected by bias in legislation.
We are delighted to announce five south London musicians have been appointed as Resident Artists to the programme: Afronaut Zu, DemiMa, Eerf Evil, Richie and Roxanne Tataei. During the residency, the Artists will develop an artistic project in response to the Horniman’s collection of musical instruments.
