The Project

‘The world comes to Street’ is a community art project which is using material from the Millfield visitors’ books to highlight the diverse and important people who came to Street between 1891 and 1935.

Over the course of 5 days participants will construct a huge map of Great Britain and a giant globe onto which we will trace the journeys made by visitors to Street. We hope to have two impressive pieces which show both how many and how varied these visitors were. We will use information from the visitors’ books to plot these journeys.

Volunteer Opportunities

We need a team of volunteers to help us make this a success!

  • Welcoming participants and explaining what stage we are at and what they can do to help
  • Ensuring that we have enough materials available, and stocking up
