Two young explorers outside the Great North Museum

Tales of ceremonial masks, wild cattle, enchanted crystals, a make-up goddess and the afterlife - presented in poetry and performances by our intrepid team of young explorers from Heaton Manor School.

Artists, performers and museum staff helped the explorers bring the museum’s collection and its hidden stories to life in new and creative ways, whilst the group’s ‘Museum of Now’ provided a peek into the current lives of teenagers and what’s important to them now.

Produced in partnership with Great North Museum: Hancock, for Newcastle/Gateshead Juice Festival 2016.
