LET'S FACE It - (April 2016)

Bored, tangled, twisted?

Urban, connected, modern?
What is the real you?

 

Not an easy question, but one faced here by 9 talented young artists.
Alia, Liveta, Hannah, Khadiza, Kirsty, Krishan, Qasim, Sana and Simran have taken over the museum.

The objects, labels and artwork all tell their stories. But be careful. They may be playing games.

 

What is real and what is not?

As Kirsty says, “I can control your gaze.”

Life is Cheep - (MARCH 2016)

 

Ten eggs …. how many will hatch?

 

It takes 21 days for the chicks to form and grow inside the eggs.  Around the 20th day the chick starts to breath. Sometimes you can even hear them cheeping from inside the egg.  Once hatched they spend a lot of time drinking, eating or snuggled up together asleep. They soon grow into much bigger chickens.

Comic book geeks
      (January – March 2016)

 

Kapow!

Are comics just for geeks? Whether you are a fan or have never picked up a comic you are sure to recognise these heroes. Explore the cases to see how two big brands, Marvel and DC have taken over popular culture.


But look further and you will be surprised at what comics offer.  Illustrations that draw you in, graphic novels that stretch your mind. Comics show the world through a different lens. What will you read next?

Campaign!

      (November – December 2015)

 

Magna Carta: 5 miles away. 800 years ago.

In 1215 King John agreed that he had to follow rules, including the right to a fair trial. The Magna Carta has influenced democracy in the UK and across the world.  In this exhibition you can find out more about campaigns for democracy and freedom through time.


Find out:

  • What convinced 1.5 million people sign anti-slavery petitions between 1787 and 1792?
  • Why are we showing you pamphlets that were illegal in school before 2003? 
  • Which countries have not agreed to the UN’s convention on children’s rights?

 

Decide for yourself:

  • Does breaking the law help a campaign?
  • What does the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal tell us about civil rights in USA today?
  • What is so important about the Magna Carta?

Paint My Day

      (September – October 2015)

 

Colours, shapes, smells and sounds.

We take our everyday lives for granted.
In this exhibition you can see different experiences recorded by children around the world. Cities and countryside, peace and war, people and animals, you can find contrasts and similarities everywhere you look.
