Journey to Justice

Start-up guide

Touring the exhibition programme

The JtoJ exhibition is available for hire in partnership with local communities; individuals, groups and organisations, particularly those working with young people. We will work with you to run taster days which draw together interested parties and offer advice and support in the development of local JtoJ cross-community teams. They will fundraise, find venues, organise events, arts and education programmes and develop new activities in the community. And local people will research and recount within the exhibition stories of when local women, men and children joined together to work for freedoms and rights, creating a cross community identity for JtoJ, inspiring those newly motivated by the exhibition programme.

The purpose of this guide is to help you prepare for and organise a JtoJ exhibition programme in your area. You can access over 30 templates including planning tools, policies, an example budget and adverts for volunteers and local co-ordinators.

To date the exhibition has travelled to Newcastle, Sheffield, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Tower Hamlets, Lambeth, Nottingham, Bristol, Newham, Dorchester, Liverpool, Islington and is now in Brent, going next to Leicester then Birmingham with growing interest in Kingston-upon-Thames, Redcar, Stockton, Cambridge and Sussex.

We consulted members of local JtoJ teams in order to develop the guide so it brings together learning from eight very different communities. We hope it offers practical advice for those setting up new projects and thinking about how to ensure continuation.

We know one size does not fit all and each area creates a programme to suit its priorities within an agreed framework. Members of the national team are always available to advise and support. With special thanks to our Policy Development Volunteer, Verna Chung and everyone who contributed.
