Young people's museum project receives National Lottery boost
A PROJECT to connect young people with museums and their collections using a range of digital technologies and creative media has been awarded more than £900,000 from the National Lottery.
The Reimagine, Remake, Replay project will enable young people to enhance museum collections by making and curating their own exhibitions.
Thousands of 16-25 year olds will be involved.
Seven museums and galleries will open up their collections of fine and applied arts, furniture, costume and textiles, maritime and industrial heritage and archaeology and archives for participants to explore.
The young people will pick up a host of new skills to help reimagine these collections and create new interpretive materials that incorporate new, modern technologies into the displays.
The project will be delivered by the Nerve Centre, in partnership with National Museums Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Screen and Northern Ireland Museums Council.
