The Secret Life of Objects

Object help us make sense of the world around us, provide opportunities to make connections and learn about different cultures and periods in time. Past people’s creativity and ingenuity, technological changes, causation and continuity can all be seen in what an object is, how it is made, what it looks like and how it was used. Using museum objects provides a rare opportunity to use past creativity to explore and inspire future creativity.

Developed through the Arts and Education Network south East, the Secret Life of Objects provides a three stager framework for the creative investigation of objects and their use as inspiration for creative outputs.
