Catherine Ross founded the National Caribbean Heritage Museum in 2016. The museum is the first in the UK to celebrate Caribbean heritage, culture and social history.
As a museum ‘without walls’, 'Museumand' aims to connect with communities across the UK through pop-up exhibitions, art, music, performance and food.
Lynda-Louise Burrell is the other co-founder the Museum and is the Museum's full-time Creative Director.
Catherine emigrated with her family from the Caribbean island of Saint Kitts to the UK in November 1958, when she was aged seven years old.
