Living Heritage at
The British Museum


November 2010

Project type

In conjunction with London Borough of Camden’s Out of School Learning Service, Beverley, Yukie and Crona, alongside students from Central Saint Martins MA Creative Practice for Narrative Environments collaborated with Year 10 Creative Media pupils at Hampstead School.

The project aimed to engage pupils with the built environment, through an educational experience at the British Museum designed to develop their photography skills.

Using the concept of role reversal and the playful theme of escape, pupils were asked to put themselves in the shoes of a museum object, creatively looking through the lens to communicate six visual stories.

The project culminated in a pop-up exhibition which celebrated the pupil’s creativity. The exhibition was on show at the British Museum and the Innovation Centre CSM, before moving to its final location at Hampstead School.
