This slide deck comes from Rosie Clarke and Nick Stockman, the team at Culture24 who coordinate the annual Museums at Night festival. The images depict the diverse range of projects and strands of work that non-profit online cultural publisher Culture24 produces; the growth of Museums at Night over the last few years, along with pictures of some of the successful events; and an outline of how the Connect10 competition enables UK museums and galleries to win a top artist and £2000 for their Museums at Night event.

  • 11. We were intrigued with a project that relocates a cult exploitation movie, reimagined by a contemporary hipper than hip director, into a former Church in a steel town. Faster Pussycat… is an ode to female violence and plays with traditional gender roles. This brought to mind Scunthorpe’s only newsworthy riot that took place in 1997 and started with two women brawling outside a chip shop after a night out and ended with 3 burnt out police cars. ‘If you want wild living fast…’ then come to 20-21.
  • 12. We want the installation overall to reflect the migration story of Tyneside. We have various impactful statistics and data sets that Julia could use as the basis of this piece. We envisage the community’s participation as fundamental to the process. In the lead up to the event we would form an exciting campaign to collect the vessels needed for the installation. We will use our extensive community networks in the project to ensure diversity of participation. We would like to invite visitors to the Late Show event this year to participate in the creation of the installation and, to also take a memento of their involvement away with them. The installation could be in the impressive Great Hall with views across the city, late Victorian architecture and 120 sq metres of space…
  • 13. We want to build on our recent growth of an audience segment the NT term ‘live life to the full’ visitors – adults who confidently seek distinctiveness and originality and whose open attitude keeps them young at heart. We also want to attract a new audience to this event -‘young experience seekers’ (a group of people who are open to a challenge and who make and take opportunities). Likely to be under 30, they are impressed by the spectacular and will approach it with energy and enthusiasm, capturing moments in their mind which will feature in the anecdotes of their life
