Monday to Friday 10 am – 4 pm, one week
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.
During 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
