Reppin Endz Derby has been shortlisted for an East Midlands Heritage Award for its work with young people. The Awards are organised by Museum Development East Midlands and are open to museums and organisations delivering projects.
Reppin Endz has been led by a steering group (image right: Will, Cizz, Karnage, Tomek) who have attended meetings and sessions, given their ideas, and given their time to make sure the project reaches young people. Huge thank you to them. Reppin Endz Derby has been shortlisted under the ‘Engaging Young People in Heritage’ category. The ceremony for 2015 will take place in Nottingham in June.
