Object Hosting

Every year, we feature an object selected from the Horniman Museum. Placed on the ramp in the Laban Building, it inspires some of the programming at the Horniman Museum and Garden's Summer Festivals, including commissioned work and participatory opportunities and performances.

This year, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Trinity Laban’s partnership with the Horniman Museum and Gardens, the Conservatoire is hosting a pair of carved wooden step stilts from the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia.
