Reimagine, Remake, Replay
Kick the Dust: Reimagine, Remake, Replay
‘Reimagine, Remake, Replay’ is a 3 year project enabling 16-25 year olds to connect with and enhance museum collections using a mix of creative media and the latest digital technologies.
Young people make and curate their own exhibitions, take over museum spaces, and enhance existing exhibits and collections through virtual reality, filmmaking, photography, 3D scanning and printing, and event management, all while developing their own innovative content and skills in digital technology.
The project is delivered by the Nerve Centre and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund's 'Kick the Dust' programme which aims to make heritage relevant to the lives of young people.
Mid Antrim Museum is one of five local museum partners in the project.
In year one, three projects have been delivered at the museum.
Event Management course: Flamingo Ballroom Escape Room, Feb-May 2019
Participants on this programme researched, organised and delivered the Flamingo Ballroom escape room on 29 May 2019 devising challenges inspired by the Mid Antrim Museum Collections.
Participants received an OCN level 2 Event Management qualification on completion of this programme.
Digital Design Course, Aug-Sept 2019
This course allowed participants to develop photography, illustration and animation skills using museum objects and exhibitions as inspiration.
Digital Makers Club, Sept-Nov 2019
The Digital Makers Club used the museum’s temporary exhibition ‘The Fiddle and the Fife’ to develop their skills in photography, digital fabrication and design, laser engraving and vinyl cutting. They produced t-shirts, tote bags and their own display of musical instruments to complement the exhibition.
