Smother and Coram

About Coram

Coram has developed a range of programmes that bring positive change for children today and restore hope for the children of tomorrow. The work of Coram addresses what matters most to children: to feel loved; to feel safe; to feel confident enough to make choices; to believe that hope exists. Coram targets support to those that need it most, drawing on over 270 years of experience.

Smother and Coram at the Foundling Museum

In a special collaboration between Artangel Interaction, Coram Young Parents Project and the Foundling Museum, work made in the development of Smother will be on display throughout the Foundling Museum.

The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, London’s first home for abandoned children. It was founded by the philanthropist Thomas Coram, the artist William Hogarth and the composer George Friedrich Handel. Now housed in a restored building adjacent to the original site, it boasts a remarkable collection of art, period interiors and social history. Today, the work of Thomas Coram continues through the children’s charity, Coram. 

Foundling Museum opening times:
Tues - Sat 10am-5pm
Sun 11am-5pm
Closed on Mondays
Admission £7.50 / Concessions £5 / children free
