Latest News from Museums in Motion

The Museums in Motion team are excited to be returning to Stevenage Museum for the fourth time this February, ready to create a new installation that will run in the Spring.  Then later this year we have a return visit to Watford Museum for the sixth and final residency in Museums in Motion 2.0.

We are also inviting past participants to develop their skills with an enhancement programme in April.  The week of workshops will support young people to not only develop skills in areas of their particular interest but will also provide a platform for them to create and present their own work.


‘What is inside your mobile phone?’

Each Museums in Motion installation unpacks mobile technology to explore what objects and technology use to fulfill the job of apps and functions of a mobile today and how that impacts the way people live, behave and move.  Remembering life before music and film streaming, blogs, on-line gaming, search engines, email, instant messaging and on-line photo sharing.

Future Museums in Motion residencies, workshops and installations will be taking place throughout 2018/19 at: Royston Museum, Watford Museum, 
Stevenage Museum, North Hertfordshire Museum, St Albans Museum and British Schools Museum.

Museums in Motion is a partnership project with six Hertfordshire Museums, managed by BEEE Creative CIC, with artistic direction from makeAMPLIFY, with funding raised by The National Lottery and awarded to the project by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
