Hour or Two

Would you like to share information about our collections with our online audiences? Do you have a favourite object that you want to shout about? We are looking for people who would like to share their love of Corinium Museum's collections through creative writing and a little bit of research. What is the object and how was it used? Why have you chosen the object and what do you think it means to people visiting the museum today?

What's involved?

Spend a couple of hours researching and writing about an object of your choice from the Corinium Museum collections. Your object could be on display or in our reserve collection. You may like to visit the museum to research your object further or research online through our online collections database.

Why get involved?

Writing the blog should not take any longer than a couple of hours and will allow you to demonstrate your creative writing skills keeping online audiences interested. You are welcome to include photographs as long as you have taken them yourself or asked us to find a photograph for you. You can be near or far to complete this challenge! We'd love to hear what you think about our collections. This challenge is suitable for ages 13+
