The D-Day Story, formerly the Portsmouth D-Day Museum, will open in time for Easter following a £5m Heritage Lottery Fund transformation ahead of the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019.

It is the only museum in the UK dedicated to the Allied Invasion on 6 June 1944 when the greatest armada in history, with soldiers, sailors and airmen from 13 different countries, launched against the shores of Normandy to begin the liberation of Europe from German occupation.

The museum contains many exhibits not previously displayed to the public, in refurbished galleries which feature the words and perspectives of those involved — from both a military and a civilian viewpoint. There will also be spaces for learning, events, and interactive displays.

The transformed museum maximises the impact of its collection, to ensure that this important chapter in history is retold in a way that continues to inspire generations to come.

The D-Day Story is full of personal stories of courage and determination, comradeship, and sacrifice, secrecy and deception, innovation and tactics. It is a story in which ordinary people worked together to achieve an extraordinary outcome, exemplifying ‘the epic made personal — the personal made epic’.

This passed week has been challenging, but healing. As I have been walking through this journey as a photographer and storyteller, my heart for encouraging others to feel worthy of themselves and know how much their loved, surprisingly took a beautiful turn. I realized that I had some soul searching and worth of my own that I hadn’t allowed the Lord to fully finish in me. Honestly, He will never be done with me and that is the big acceptance and knowing that growth is a huge part of life and walking in His grace and love needs to continue to be my reality. It’s ok to mourn your past and grieve over things that you haven’t healed from. It doesn’t make you weak, it allows you to be free and reminds you, you are human and how much Christ shows up through your hard times. You will never feel more loved. This is my journey. I want to recklessly fall in love with my Lord, as He does for me. I want to see myself the way He sees me. Today is a fresh start. You can start fresh today to. His mercies are new every morning. But we won’t receive the healing and freedom until we walk in it. It may take another 5 Years to feel like we’re moving, but with Christ, His is hand is waiting for you to reach it so you can grab on and feel his loving touch. My life will consistently be a life of healing but I have to accept this is my life everyday and it’s good!! I would do this all over again to know see how the Lord is in love with me and how real it is. Today, I got my normal trim but wanted bangs back and done properly. I couldn’t of asked for a better time of renewal! And btw my new bathroom wall color makes the best backdrop! - thanks @anivan for helping me grow into a better me and love myself just a little bit more. 🧡🙌🏻⭐️✨ .

Buqa Couture believes in continuing the journey of learning in adulthood to have a vision for/of our tomorrow. Second had shop buy. Looking forward to reading it. Forget about yoga class we head to the bookshop for our stress release and sanctuary (though ballet class would come a close second as the most relaxing activity ever!). Let us try to step back from the age of information back to knowledge and from knowledge hopefully to wisdom. #books #education #adulteducation #reading #secondhand #charityshop #visionary #visionary #sustainablefuture #letscometogethertomakeadifference #culture #personalstories #personaldevelopment #learning #leader #bookshops #obsessedwithbooks #obsessedwithbookshops #calm #themind #mindblowing #information #knowledge #sustainablefuture #sustainability #wisdom

My mother loved tulips. 🌷

We chose to engrave tulips on her gravestone so she would always have them with her.
This is one of three tulip paintings I did a couple of months after her passing, both as a celebration of her and a way of coping with my grief. It was a very tough time. •
This one was sold at my first exhibition, and looking back now I can see that even though her passing away was immensely difficult and painful to go through, it also pushed me closer to the core of my being.
It forced me to connect with my creative force, my voice, my self. It helped me, in some way, find my artistic flow. All hardships can help you evolve, if you choose to grow from your experiences.
After all, without her life journey being what it was, mine would not be the same. It is all connected.
The other two tulips are hanging at @halsohusetgbg 🌱
I’m not sure I’m going to sell them. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Incredible behind-the-scenes tour last night at the San Diego Museum of Man! ✨

During the tour, EMPs had the opportunity to approach the idea of race from a scientific background, from a historic standpoint, and from the sharing & discussion of our own personal stories.
Fitting with our 2018 theme, this event allowed attendees to open up in a “brave space”, where candid and authentic discussion was respected and encouraged.
We are so excited to bring more of these conversations to our awesome museum professionals community!
And, a huge thank you to @museumofman for facilitating this meaningful and important conversation! ✨
