Museum collections provide inspiration for cultural diversity project

Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery is working in partnership with a local arts organisation and local young people to create a special exhibition inspired by museum collections and cultural diversity.
Aspire In Arts provide inclusive arts activities and generic youth led provision to young people across Warwickshire. As part of their Heritage Lottery funded ‘Young Roots’ project they invited the Museum & Art Gallery to be a partner and help participants deliver their own cultural heritage project.
In weekly workshops led by the Museum team, young people have been getting hands on with some of our beautiful collections from around the world. Inspired by objects they select they will create their own exhibition in the Museum’s Community Showcase which can be seen from 25th April.
Youth Worker Kirsty Lowrie commented,’Working with the Museum & Art Gallery collections has given the participants a fantastic appreciation of other cultures around the world as well as a unique opportunity to learn professional museum skills.’
