Our Sporting Life, River & Rowing Museum, Henley
Opened March 2010
RFA was appointed by the Sports Heritage Network to design and deliver Our Sporting Life, a programme of modular exhibitions that celebrate the sporting heritage of Britain, in the build up to the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic games. It is a unique and ambitious celebration of British sport, highlighting how it has shaped the country, its communities and people. It is the first project of its kind to salute sport from the grass roots to the Olympic podia.
From the inaugural exhibition at the River & Rowing Museum in 2010, another 100 will have opened by the start of the Olympics – spread all over Britain.
Asking the question “What does sport mean to you?” Our Sporting Life seeks to identify sporting moments, heroes, objects, photographs and experiences that have inspired the people of Britain.
