The Front Room

25 Oct-17 Nov 2007

Website now live please log on 'I grew up learning that "cleanliness is next to godliness" and that no matter how poor we were, if the front room looked good, then we were decent people.' ? Michael McMillan.

In association with Michael McMillan, Iniva presents The Front Room interactive website, live from October 2007. This fantastic resource for all ages looks at the common space of the front room and the different ways it’s used and presented across diverse cultures.

The website will let you visit other people’s front rooms or living rooms online, find out a little about these spaces and how they’re used. You can even return the gesture and invite others to your front room. Send us a photograph and let us know what your front room means to you, what you feel it says about you and how you use it. It’s an opportunity for you and your front room to become part of this project!

From the 25 October – 17 November, part of the West Indian Front Room exhibition originally shown at the Geffrye Museum will be on display in the Education Space at Rivington Place.  Visitors are welcome to come in and explore the Front Room.

Send us a photo of your front room or living room

Email a digital photo in jpg format or post a printed photo (printed photos will not be returned)

This should be no longer than 50 words and please include your name and the place you live

Please indicate in your email or letter that you’re happy for us to include your photograph and information on The Front Room website, live from October 2007 to coincide with the opening of Iniva’s new home at Rivington Place.
