We have always needed to talk, haven’t we? ‘We Need to Talk’ explores the eagerness and anxieties that have grown around the development of communication technologies over different periods of time. From ancient coins to the Minitel, ‘We Need to Talk’ will look at how communication technology has been questioned and celebrated for its impact on us and our social networks.

Along with the exhibition, our team is also participating with a special project at Science Museum April's Lates. A drop in session entitled ‘Wearable Superpower’ addresses the theme of wearable technology. Visitors will have the chance to design their own superhero, explore diverse wearable technologies, talk to experts and, above all, have fun with their friends.

In order to achieve our aims, we have been busy raising money with three successful bake sales and a fundraising party. But in order to achieve all that we have set out to do, we need your help. Please donate what you can, so that we can create a well-presented exhibition and a more visitor-focused event. 

Thank you for reading, and we look forward to inviting you to our exhibition and event later this month!
