You are with them On a ship Heading to the new world On a never-ending sloshing sea

In these uncertain times, we’ve all been cast out onto our own ships, on a voyage to an unknown destination

Help is at hand, with our creative care packages

Register below to receive a limited edition Imagination Museum Creative Care Package through the post that will help transport you back in time to 1620 and to the Mayflower. Alternatively, you can download some of the content of the package here and access how-to videos below.

Your Creative Care Package will get you thinking about what life must have been like for the passengers making a treacherous journey from England to America 400 years ago.

It will include a few treasures to help you respond to the story of that journey in your own way. If you want to, we’d love you to share what you’re doing with us so we can display it in our gallery -​ take a look below to see some of the beautiful artwork we’ve already received, including some example labels from our designer for the Creative Care Package project, Ruth Pigott.

Am I eligible?

In the first instance we have a limited number of 1000 of these packages to send for free, and we will begin by sending these to the groups with which we should have been working in 2020 in Hampshire, Dorset and Plymouth as part of The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 project,  as well as making some available to the communities with which we worked in 2019.

If you are in one of those groups, you should have a code that you can enter into the sign-up form opposite, so that we can prioritise your delivery.

If you do not have a code, but would like to receive a package, please complete the form selecting the option ‘waiting list’. The first 20 people to sign up this way will receive a free package, so don't delay! 

We will then keep you updated if we receive sufficient demand to make more packages available, but please note that after the first 1000 free Care Packages are distributed, there will be a small cost involved in ordering more.

You can also download a pdf of some of the materials in the package here  and can access some of our how-to videos for the tasks in the pack below. You are warmly welcomed to join in with the activities you see here, even if you don’t receive a package in the post.

Any other questions? Take a look at our FAQs here.

Donations welcome

If you don’t want to receive a package but would like to donate to make sure that someone else can, please consider contributing £5 per package (or any other amount) via PayPal here.
