Museums Today for 15 - 17 Year Olds
This course is for those interested in social and cultural history and how it is being curated in museums and galleries today.
In Nottingham and the surrounding areas there are many nationally important museums, as well as castles, country estates and art galleries, all celebrating British history.
On our doorstep are The National Justice Museum, Nottingham Contemporary Gallery, Hardwick Hall, Wollaton Hall, Chatsworth House and more.
You will start this course by visiting some of these places and learn first-hand from professionals about how marketing is exploiting the history of the region to attract local, national and international visitors.
On this course you will:
- examine local and regional history and contemporary cultures
- visit important buildings and see their collections
- learn about the museum sector and its funding
- examine how the interpretation of material culture can affect the artefact on display
- create a project and proposal that responds to new ways of curating.
Lively classroom activities will help you identify key themes as you immerse yourself in British culture and history.
You will complete the week by creating a proposal, either individually or in groups, for an exhibition that celebrates the history and heritage of the region.
What will I gain?
By the end of the week you will have a notebook full of ideas, visual research (sketches and photographs) and a project that will enhance a portfolio or support an application to college or university.
