The Food Museum and Aspire Black Suffolk are working together to host Power of Stories, which includes costumes from the Marvel Studios’ film, Black Panther. The exhibition seeks to bring the cultural life stories of the Black communities locally to the forefront.

Community Attendants will play a key role in this project as they will welcome visitors to the exhibition, and engage them to have a meaningful experience of the exhibition, sharing their own stories and those of others.
