Belonging: An Online Exhibition on Childhood


We all deserve to “belong” somewhere. We all need to feel safe and secure in our identity. We all want to be part of a community. But what does this mean in relation to children throughout the years?

Most children – but by no means all – belong as part of a family, and as part of a school. Most children live in a street, as part of a neighbourhood.

But some children’s stories are different!

This exhibition brings together a collection of 17 still images and documents selected from the collections from Gloucestershire Archives, and depicts the lives of children throughout the ages, who have their own story to tell and their own interpretation of belonging.
