Course Description

In Nottingham and the surrounding areas there are many nationally important museums, as well as castles, country estates and art galleries, all celebrating British history.

On our doorstep are The National Justice Museum, Nottingham Contemporary Gallery, Hardwick Hall, Wollaton Hall, Chatsworth House and more.

You will start this course by visiting some of these places and learn first-hand from professionals about how marketing is exploiting the history of the region to attract local, national and international visitors.

This course is for those interested in social and cultural history and how it is being curated in museums and galleries today.


On this course you will:

 - Examine local and regional history and contemporary cultures

 - Visit important buildings and see their collections

 - Learn about the museum sector and its funding

 - Examine how the interpretation of material culture can affect the artefact on display

 - Create a project and proposal that responds to new ways of curating.

Lively classroom activities will help you identify key themes as you immerse yourself in British culture and history.

You will complete the week by creating a proposal, either individually or in groups, for an exhibition that celebrates the history and heritage of the region.


What will I gain?

By the end of the week you will have a notebook full of ideas, visual research (sketches and photographs) and a project that will enhance a portfolio or support an application to college or university.


Level: Open to all

Entry requirement: You should have an enthusiasm for history and an interest in developing your critical thinking and idea development skills.


Where you'll learn: You will be studying in the School of Arts and Humanities on the City Campus.

You will find modern teaching spaces and group study environments to develop your ideas between visits to local museums.

You’ll also have access to our library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can’t reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.
