World Stories: Young Voices

– An exciting residency at Brighton Museum. culminating in interactive, colourful displays that integrated the stories of the world art collection with the personal memories and experiences of visitors.


Creatures made by visitors to Brighton Museum using cut out images of objects from the world stories young voices gallery. Made as part of the Digitalize week long residency.

Working with the museum’s curators and visitors, and inspired by their responses to questions we posed about the permanent exhibition ‘World Stories: Young Voices, SDNA created a series of living, animated installations in museum cabinets and sample jars.

World Stories: Young Voices was a celebration of Brighton Museum’s world art collection which was re-displayed with the involvement of young people, local communities and creative professionals. It was the South East’s flagship museum project for the London 2012 Festival and part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
