Museum of… NOW! was a launch project for Creative Collisions. Students from four Great Yarmouth schools and colleges created original works of art inspired by the new reminiscence collections at Time &Tide Museum, which is full of interesting thing to prompt visitors to share their memories.
After handling artefacts from the 1950’s – 1980’s the students each chose a contemporary object that they felt people would reminisce about in thirty or forty years’ time. They then interpreted the object using the artistic medium of their choice. Students worked alongside museum staff to plan, design and create the display. Art materials were funded by the Youth Advisory Board BOOM panel.
