Some images of past projects

Since this blog is still quite new, I thought I’d post some images of the outreach work I have done in the past. Just to give you a taste of what I do.

I work with toddler groups. This photo is from a session with Compass Playgroup.

I also work with children and schools. This image is a group of children with visual impairments and their friends at Lauriston Castle.

I work with older people too. This photograph is of a reminiscence session at Almond Mains Initiative.

I have done a lot of work in Newhaven. This photograph shows the exhibition Fishwives and School Lives in the Wee Museum of Newhaven in Victoria Primary School. You can find out more about the project here:

As I have mentioned before, I also have a volunteering project called Museums Alive. This image is of one of our exhibitions.

I also work with education providers. This lovely image was made during a visit by Edinburgh School of Art to the Museum Collections Centre.

On occasion I’m also known to dress up like a fishwife! This photograph is from the Dreg Songs event in Portobello.

About edinburghmuseumsoutreach

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools. I really enjoy meeting lots of people of different ages and backgrounds and helping them connect with our collections. I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
