Supporting our work
The Iris Project is run entirely by volunteers at every level and without core funding. We rely on grants and donations from generous individuals and organisations to carry out our work. Our projects wouldn't exist without the people who support us through volunteering, donations and fundraising on our behalf. By supporting us you can make a huge difference to the schools and pupils we work with, allowing us to continue to improve the work we do with schools around the country.

Director of The Iris Project and Rumble Museum: Lorna Robinson
Lorna studied Classics at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University; after a chance encounter with a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel in her finals year, she became curious about the similarities between it and Ovid, and eventually received a doctorate from University College London on 'Magical Realism in Ovid's Metamorphoses' in 2005.
