Centre of ‘memory and learning’ in Angel

Friday, 20th August 2021

A NEW museum dedicated to the Anti-Apartheid Movement is being lined up for a site at Angel.

The Liliesleaf Trust UK has asked Islington’s planning department to grant permission for a conversion of the old the former African National Congress building in Penton Street.

It would become a new “centre of memory and learning” and include space for exhibitions, a “learning garden”, a place for screenings and book launches and a free library.

If given consent and enough funds are raised through donations and sponsorship, it would open in 2023.
