Dance company Made By Katie Green is pleased to announce the launch of ‘The Imagination Museum’ website, an online platform showcasing new ways of moving in museums.
I attended the second Dance and Museums conversation event today in Southampton, organised with Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW), with whom I'm now very pleased to be a Discovery Artist, the South East Museums Development Team and Sally Williams. Following on from the last conversation in Bristol in September last year, here are some further key points that I took away from today's discussion and sharing of practice.
Yesterday I attended the UCL Museums/Impropera Symposium 'Theatrically Re-imagining Collections' (#museumsreimagined). It was a great event, featuring some examples of best practice from Punchdrunk Enrichment/National Maritime Museum, British Museum/Royal Shakespeare Company, Do not adjust your stage/National History Museum, National Museum of Wales/Theatre na nOg and Battersea Arts Centre/Creative Museums, giving me lots of food for thought and raising some interesting questions.
On the 7th March I attended an Arts Council England (South East) consultation event at Sheringham Little Theatre. Chaired by Hedley Swain, with Sir Peter Bazalgette, Amy Vaughan and Debs Butler from the Arts Council as well as many representatives from arts organisations, libraries, museums and local government, the discussion focussed on rural infrastructure and the distribution of great art, including the special part played by museums and libraries.
I was very pleased to be invited by the Irish Museums Association (IMA) to present my work on the Dancing in Museums project at their 'Creative Museum' Event in Belfast on the 23rd October 2015.
