Thanks to funding from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts Museums in Motion (MiM) is back in action with Performed Transformed.
What is MiM: Performed Transformed?
MiM: Performed Transformed will be an installation performance piece by two community groups of young people aged 8 – 18 years old and their families in Hertfordshire under the artistic direction of makeAMPLIFY. There will be an eleven-day creative process at Stevenage and Watford museums in July and August 2017 resulting in an audio-visual and live dance installation at the two museums in October. Additionally, a film documenting the process will be presented at both museums for a period of 6 weeks and online.
The project is supported by Arts Council England Grants for the Arts and Hertfordshire Music Service.
What does it aim to do?
The project aims to give participants hands on engagement with museum collections and artistically present heritage themes in new and different ways. It will encourage participants to actively contribute and collaborate in the creative process, connecting with others and learning new skills.
Why should I get involved?
Will develop new skills in choreography, film, projection and music making and get to see you work presented to live and online audiences.
Where and when will it happen?
Watford Museum – 24 – 27 July 2017 and rehearsals/performance in October half term
Stevenage Museum – 28 July – 1 August and rehearsals/performance in October half term
