Audio Stories Summer School, August 2014

During August, we’ve welcomed 13 young people to the Museum for a Bronze Arts Awards accredited Summer School, looking at how museums tell stories. We worked with curators Quintin Colville, Richard Dunn and Heloise Finch-Boyer, Archive Learning Officer Tracey Weller and writers Izara B and Paul Sherreard to explore the Museum’s collection and make creative responses. And, of course, the Youth Advisors were here to welcome them!

Here are some of our highlights…
