Secret Histories: Creative Writing Workshop with Helen Mort

10/02/2024, 11am- 1pm

Derby Museum and Art Gallery

The Strand



In the heart of the city, Derby’s Museum and Art Gallery is home to a fascinating and diverse range of nationally (and internationally) important collections.…

Museums and galleries are archives of stories. But what about the tales they leave out?

What about the objects that can’t be stored in collections? In this creative writing workshop we’ll invite you to curate your own imaginary exhibitions, tell new tales and fill in the gaps. No previous experience of creative writing is necessary. All you need is a notebook and a pen.
