Our theme for the event will be local history, and together we will explore innovative ways to share and interpret these stories.
Making History will be a challenging weekend, in which people are encouraged to immerse themselves in the task at had, exploring different ways of presenting history and museums. Participants will work in teams to explore new ways of doing history, using local community resources as inspiration. You might find yourself planning a new display, developing an education resources, designing a museum interactive or app, creating an event plan or something else again.
We are looking for anyone with a passion for history, collections, museums or their community. We will welcome people with all types and levels of experience, including volunteers and students in all areas.
