Museum Makers

Museum Makers is a group for adults with learning disabilities at Dorset County Museum, meeting every Monday morning in term time.

The group members work together with our education team, specialist carers, artists and performers to prepare temporary exhibitions of their own creative art, use IT, photography and filming to record events, go on visits to relevant sites to collect further information and use the museum as a place for inspiration.

Over the past few years the group:

  • Has curated an exhibition called Me, Myself and  I, which looked at self identity and where we come from, and included 3D self portraits and photography.
  • Created a multi media display based on the portrait of Thomas Rackett.
  • Produced a dramatisation of Thomas Hardy's The Withered Arm, working with New Hardy Players.
