Put a spring in your step at the Cuming Museum in February, March and April
Published Tuesday, 01 February 2011
The Cuming Museum has a range of exciting spring events coming up over the next few months to complement their current major exhibition of shoes.
From music and stories to shoe design and photography workshops there's something for everyone.
On Friday 11 February there's an opportunity to come to the museum after opening hours to join Chris Roberts from One Eye Grey for an evening of music and stories inspired by shoes, journeys and romance.
Shoe designer Chris Hill, who has taught Jimmy Choo, Patrick Cox and Emma Hope, will be leading a day-long shoe design workshop on Saturday 12 March.
Families will find plenty of storytelling and craft activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays through half term and Easter holidays. Young people can join artist Janetka Platun for an afternoon to learn and develop photography skills.
The Walking In My Shoes exhibition is part of London 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme Stories of the World, which presents exciting new museum exhibitions across the UK , created by young people. The project is led by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) in partnership with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).
Cllr Veronica Ward, cabinet member for culture, leisure, sport and Olympics at Southwark Council, said:
"I would really encourage people to come along to the exhibition, this is the first Cultural Olympiad exhibition held at the Cuming Museum, and judging by the different activities happening over the next few months, it's not one to miss. There are lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy, led by incredibly talented people such as shoe designer Chris Hill and storyteller Chris Roberts."
