Experience UPLIFT at Experience Barnsley!
We kicked off our collaboration on Friday night with “An Alternative Nite Out at the Museum”! UPLIFTERS saw the museum like never before with a curious evening takeover which featured a special Quizarama from UPLIFT’s favourite funny man, Stan Skinny, and live music from Barnsley based folk & roll band ‘Parable’ certainly got party started! An open mic session as well plenty of retro sweets made for a brilliant ‘Alternative Nite Out’ without the headache!
We were back at the Museum only a few days later with “Curi-Histories”. This special 2 day workshop began behind the scenes in the archive creating new stories for the bizarre & curious objects that were unearthed. Focusing on making, imaging and retelling history, UPLIFTERS had a wonderful couple of days working with artist Lee Sass, using mixed media to create their own curiosities to be placed in the Museum!
