From January 2021 we had planned to offer a selection of videos to help bring our collections and activities to life and, in particular, to provide those unable to visit in person the opportunity to explore, learn and be inspired.
But, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and its implications, rather than wait, we have decided to start to upload videos from mid-November to provide a fresh resource of interest during these challenging times.
This project will be an ongoing and developing feature with additions being made over time. We are extremely grateful for a grant awarded by South West Museum Development with thanks to funding from Art Fund and Arts Council England, which has made the start of this initiative possible.
In addition to a series of online live talks and sessions, the video resources include:
- ARTISTS AT WORK – a virtual equivalent to our artists in residence programme, giving a unique insight into their creative process
- COLLECTION SPOTLIGHTS – short videos about specific items in the museum collection
- INSTRUCTIONAL FILMS – resources for those interested in art practice (currently our art course and Wallsworth Art Group programmes are suspended)
- CHILDREN’S PROJECTS – demonstrations and ideas for young people to support our activity day programme
