The Time Turners
Join the Time Turners and work on a range of projects using the Lynn Museum and Stories of Lynn collections to create new content and make a real difference to your local community. Come and meet us to find out how you can get involved.
We have created online exhibitions, developed our own Egyptian board game, found out more about witchcraft, created a museum handling collection that reflects human development of materials, and are currently starting an interesting new English Civil War project.
In 2020, the Time Turners produced an online exhibition for Lynn Museum called Turning back time to Ancient Egyptians. We worked hard in lockdown to produce the text and select the objects for the exhibition. See the exhibition on Google Arts and Culture.
In 2021, we joined the project group working locally, nationally and internationally on the 'Nothing About Us Without Us' touring exhibition about disability awareness.
Group members said:
“I think it is great that we can work together with other Kick the Dust groups on a project. Many of us have personal experiences that we can contribute to the project so it really was nothing about us without us!”
“I couldn’t believe I was able to have a virtual tour of a museum in Lagos, Nigeria, where one of our group members lives. When I joined Kick the Dust, I never expected to be able to meet people with the same interests as me in another country.”
“Using our suggestions to help people engage with the exhibition made us really proud. We really worked hard to make sure it was accessible to everyone.”
Building on our success with designing and creating an Egyptian board game, A Trail of Trials, we have begun work on making a new game to play. Joined by our Time Turn-ing curator, we have been researching different game styles, with a slice of pizza to help us think! There has been a local archaeological dig near our museum, and we hope the game will help people to understand about the English Civil War in King’s Lynn, whilst playing our game.
