The Storytellers

During one-day workshops with school pupils, we invented and developed stories about the museum archives collection at the Museums Collections Centre. These mythologies were then re-performed to camera, by existing Other Place participants

The Storytellers layered different accounts of a situation or location so that it was no longer obvious what is true. Students toured the archive searching for The Other Place and looking at things differently to how they might have on a usual tour. The aim was to form alternate fictions about some of the objects they came across.
