The St Helena Cultural Centre (SHCC) will bring together the St Helena Museum, the Jamestown Public Library and provide purpose designed spaces for the sensitive St Helena Archives – which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. In the SHCC, these three institutions will be able to share their resources under one roof and offer a modern, educational, archive, research and exhibition centre for the Island – fitted with a digital hub for Saints. The library will take centre stage, acting as a modern educational, communication and learning resource for residents.
The project is a community initiative and will be entirely developed through fundraising. MWAI are currently providing their expertise free of charge.
