We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the Choices and Consequences exhibition at the National Justice Museum in Nottingham was highly commended at last night’s Museum and Heritage Awards.
The prestigious awards celebrate excellence in the museum and culture sector, and the anti-knife crime workshops launched in partnership with the Ben Kinsella Trust in June 2019, were recognised in the category of 'Learning Programme of the Year'.
Patrick Green, CEO of the Ben Kinsella Trust said
“We are incredibly proud of our partnership with the National Justice Museum. This commendation is testament to the incredible work that they do in Nottingham to prevent knife crime through a powerful exhibition and anti-knife crime workshops.
"The Choices and Consequences exhibition was developed by the Kinsella family following Ben’s murder in 2008. The commendation is further testament to Ben’s legacy – the impact that the workshops have on young people, which help them to make positive choices to stay safe from knife crime.”
The commendation comes as the National Justice Museum have launched a new range of live ‘down the line’ workshops to ensure schools across the region can continue to benefit from 'Choices and Consequences', Nottingham, even if they feel unable to visit in the present climate of covid restrictions.
