As we published a few days ago, this is one of the new exhibitions that you can find in the re-opened Brontë Parsonage Museum:

Contemplating Hope
An installation by Layla Khoo
May 19th 2021 - May 31st 2022

'Contemplating Hope' is a new work by ceramist Layla Khoo. Specially commissioned for the Brontë Parsonage Museum, it features a series of carefully crafted ceramic vessels into which visitors are invited to post a slip of paper containing their hopes and dreams for the future.
The work is a creative response to the diary papers of Anne and Emily Brontë. The sisters would write their aspirations for the future on scraps of paper which they would store in a cash box and only revisit after four years. A selection of these diary papers will also be on display as part of the exhibition.
'Contemplating Hope', which was originally planned for 2020, has taken on a new meaning since the pandemic, with a focus on the future at the forefront of so many minds.
