New Exhibition: Foundling Voices

Foundling Voices, The Foundling Museum, London, April 14 - October 30, 2011

The Foundling Voices exhibition uses audio interviews, photographs and film to chronicle the personal stories of children who were brought up in the care of the Foundling Hospital. The interviews with more than 70 former foundlings cover a range of topics: family separation, the stigma of illegitimacy, the spartan educational environment, wartime heroism, and the search for birth mothers.

Foundling Voices Online, like the exhibit, is organized into the following themes: Early Life; School Life; Into the World; Search for Birth Families; and Reflections. The Films section combines excerpts from the interviews with photographs to document "Music at Foundling" and the relationships between the children and their birth mothers. For additional images from the exhibition, see the Foundling Voices Facebook page.

Many thanks to Gemma Colgan, Marketing and Communications Manager at the Foundling Museum, for passing along information about this major exhibition.
