A free one-off workshop for people aged 16-25 with an interest in history and museum curation is being offered as part of the Centre for New Writing’s ‘Sole 2 Soul’ project. The workshop is part of an Arts Council funded initiative, which will create new digital assets for the Falkner Boot and Shoe exhibit at Harborough Museum. The offered workshop will train 12 Future Curators in the skills necessary to curate and rejuvenate the Falkner Boot and Shoe Exhibit. Participants will be given a guided tour of the Falkner Boot and Shoe exhibition before hearing poems, tweets and flash fiction about the exhibit. Afterwards, they will be given support and expert advice to produce a Future Curators webpage and podcast, as well as being interviewed for a radio programme. This workshop is a wonderful opportunity for anyone young person interested in history, museums and their engagement with social media to gain valuable experience in exhibition curation. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
