My Spice Box Remedies

CHAI - My Spice Box Remedies exhibition

Kingston Museum
7 December 2018 - 16 March 2019

My Spice Box Remedies is a multimedia exhibition that brings together the heritage of spice and herb remedies that have been used for generations across the many cultures living in Kingston.
Come and experience the vibrant colours and aromas of these spices and herbs and learn about their incredible properties.
Exhibition panels and display cases will showcase spices and herbs in their many forms, from the natural plants to the powders that we buy.

The exhibition is the culmination of a heritage project delivered over 21 months with local community groups from Kingston’s multicultural communities.
The project has also created a ‘living’ exhibition in the form of a community spice and herb garden at the Milaap Centre.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a programme of events, oral history interviews and a publication.  
Events can be booked on Kingston Museum and History Centre's Eventbrite page.

The exhibition is curated by CHAI (Culture, History and I), a Kingston based voluntary organisation and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
