#Museum30 2020!

Somehow we are already in the fourth year of #museum30, a little challenge I set up to improve my use of museum social media (find out more about the past challenges here). The challenge begins on Nov 1st but you can join in whenever you are able! This year the prompts are a little different,... Continue Reading →

Mary Rose Museum

This is a post I wrote in November last year, it has sat in my drafts since then. I've been missing museums recently and re-reading the post reminded me of a great trip and how much I love them. I want to get back into writing about museums, heritage and just my life generally here... Continue Reading →

2020 Reading Goals

I managed to read around 15 books in 2019, which isn't a huge number but most of those were read after I finished university. Like many students, I found it difficult to spend time reading fiction when I thought I should be reading something more academic (I wrote a blog post about it here). This... Continue Reading →

The challenge has quickly become one of my favourite events in my museum calendar,... Continue Reading →

The Room with the Dead Things

It is highly likely that if I ever go missing in a museum, you would be able to find me in the room with the dead things. I have curated over the past three years a, perhaps, unusual interest in taxidermy, promoting in the people I meet several responses: Why?! Don't you find it creepy? Hasn't that gone out of fashion? And my favourite to answer, How is it done?

#TaxidermyWeek

From March 11th to 15th I will be running a #TaxidermyWeek on Twitter. This forms part of my undergraduate dissertation looking at how social media can be used to increase engagement with Taxidermy Specimens. I have answered some questions below: What is it? #TaxidermyWeek is a time for us to celebrate taxidermy as a medium... Continue Reading →

Taxidermy Worksheets – #TaxidermyWeek

With #museum30 I asked people to submit photos based on a series of prompts but this time for #TaxidermyWeek I want it to be more creative.¬†Write, draw, create and photograph your responses to the topics and share your feelings about taxidermy. To help you think of some creative responses to the prompts I have created... Continue Reading →

#museum30 – Photography Challenge 2018

On Thursday 1st November I will be running the second #museum30 photography challenge (the first ran in 2017 - find out more here). As you will notice if you completed the challenge last year the date has moved forward - this is so that the days line up with each prompt. Pretty much everything else... Continue Reading →
