1. The Life of Objects is an Open Museum project that encourages young people to take museums objects out of Glasgow Museums' store and to bring them to life using animation.

    Eight young people from Kennishead were the first to take part in the project. This is their animation, "Tribute" and the accompanying behind the scenes doumentary. It was first premiered in the Glasgow Film Theatre on 30th January 2010.

    As Aziz says during the film, "Just enjoy!"

    From January to June 2011 the Open Museum worked in collaboration with Theatre Nemo to help a group of young people from Tollcross in the east end of Glasgow make an animation inspired by museum objects.

    This is the resulting animation, "Ninja Mouse vs Samurai Owl" and the accompanying behind the scenes doumentary. It was first premiered in Cineworld, Renfrew Street in Glasgow on 11th June 2011.

    We hope you enjoy the show!

  3. The Open Museum teamed up with Stretch to work on a digital storytelling project with Offenders at HMP Addiewell.

    The films are each only a few minutes long, but very moving. Some stories are sad, some are funny, some are hopeful. This is Peter's story: The Hills Are Calling.

    Stretch is an independent charity that works with extremely excluded audiences. You can find out more about their work at stretch-charity.org

    Objects from the Glasgow Museums’ collection were brought to the prison to inspire the creation of 5 digital stories. Inspired by the objects, the group created personal scripts, recorded and edited their individual films.
