A Historic Site
Event’s challenge was to do justice to the Sisters’ remarkable contribution to South London’s Docklands by layering displays through a working convent. Inspiration came from the Sisters’ own annals from which three thematic strands emerged: Bermondsey - the Locality and its People; the Story of the Convent; The Mercy Ethos.
Displays respond to the ambience in the building. The narrative starts with secular themes and gradually moves towards the spiritual, reflecting the underlying ethos of Mercy founder Catherine McAuley.
