Big Draw | Jersey Museum & Art Gallery

Monday 28 October – Friday 1 November | 10am – 4pm

This half-term, Jersey Heritage is inviting children to see into the future as they get stuck in with exciting, futuristic arts & craft activities at Jersey Museum & Art Gallery.  Can you imagine what Jersey will be like in the future? Predict what food, art, technology, clothes, cars, playgrounds and building will look like in years to come.  We will take inspiration from the historic artifacts and collections on display at Jersey Museum, to design our very own inventions of the future. We will use unusual tools to create futuristic arts, contemplate which artifacts will be collected in years to come and decide what you would collect if you had a museum of the future - the sky is the limit!

 

Family Events Co-ordinator, Helen Otterwell said “Jersey Heritage hosts a special half term family event for our members and the public to enjoy, every year. This week of educational, futuristic and fun activities offers islanders a chance to go back to the future and get creative, whatever the weather! We will be drawing from the past to find future inspiration; in particular we will be visiting the All Change Victorian Exhibition currently on display at Jersey Museum, sponsored by Le Gallais. This is a fantastic opportunity for families to be entertained as they learn and we look forward to seeing them there!’
