The Connect10 competition is a part of Culture 24’s Museums at Night festival. The aim of this festival is to inspire after hours cultural events at museums, galleries and heritage sites which will take place every May. Connect10 is a competition which allows museums, libraries and archives to win the chance to work with a contemporary artist, and use the experience to reach out to new audiences and create a lasting legacy.
The Cardiff Story Museum has been shortlisted for the prize to work with Janette Parris alongside People’s History Museum, Manchester, Weston Park Museum, Sheffield and The New Art Gallery, Walsall. The winner of the prize will be selected via public vote. The public vote will open on Tuesday 14 January until Tuesday 28 January. Voting details can be found on Culture 24’s Museums at Night webpage www.museumsatnight.org.uk.
If successful the Cardiff Story Museum will be collaborating with the acclaimed contemporary artist Janette Parris whose work has been exhibited across the UK, and will receive a £2000 bursary to create ‘alternative’ tours delivered by a combination of actors, comedians, ventriloquists and puppets.
