‘REMIX the MUSEUM’ showcases the animations and gifs produced by young people. They are the result of monthly drop-in workshops that have been running at Brighton Museum throughout the year. Each session focused on different animation techniques, inspired by different museum objects and themes, including ‘Under the Sea’, ‘Shadow’ and ‘Local History’.
The young people were particularly inspired by the story of the Royal Pavilion being used as a hospital for soldiers who had lost limbs during the First World War and many of the new animations were created in response to the 100 year centenary anniversary of the end of the war. They worked with original photographs, cartoons and soldiers’ stories to bring this history to life.
‘REMIX the MUSEUM’ is a youth program created by Brighton Youth Film Festival in collaboration with the Brighton Museum and animator Dave Packer. The program runs animation/film/gif workshops exploring the collections of a museum.
Anyone who is interested in gaining a fresh perspective on museum collections through the eyes of young people.
