Museum TV

You can never have too many shoes. The only issue is where do you keep them all?

Climb into the Dream Shoe Closet and see…

Northampton Museum and Art Gallery is developing wider access to its internationally renowned shoe collection and raising the profile of the collection among an audience interested in fashion and design - and among simple shoe lovers.

The Dream Shoe Closet at Vintage at the Wilderness Festival was about reaching this audience.

What did festival goers and designers say? This film and report (link) looks at new ways of reaching audiences – how do Museums reach and connect? What are the difficulties in doing this creatively?

“I’d say museums have to be more adventurous. They just need to be just less over protective - so protective that nothing ever comes out of the store. We’re the ones who are paying money or supporting museums so we need to see these collections in relevant places like this – a place where there’s exciting fashions going on – you need to see the shoe collection here to really inspire you – kind of make it creative and fun.”

'Museum TV' presents a wide range of films made for the cultural heritage sector - including museums, galleries and cultural heritage sites across the UK and abroad. We use film in an integral evaluation process - alongside analysis in an evaluation report. Film lets you hear what people think - in their own authentic voice. Film lets you see people interact and express themselves in other ways than words - and sometimes this is more revealing than reading a transcript. Film also gives you a glimpse of exhibitions, spaces, buildings, landscapes and collections. A report can only do this in a limited way. Our reports concentrate on analysis and recommendations for action. Where we can, we let people speak for themselves.
