TEXT WRITING & EDITING PROJECTS
New Walk Museum, Leicester
Ancient Egypt Gallery - Kids' Activities
I researched, devised and wrote the content for a range of activities for children and families. These included simple physical interactives, a gallery trail and activity sheets.
Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire
Magna Carta Exhibition
Working with Haley Sharpe Design Ltd, I wrote the text for this HLF-funded redisplay of the Salisbury Magna Carta.
Fort McHenry National Historic Site, Baltimore, Maryland
Working with Haley Sharpe Design Ltd, I researched and wrote the text for the interpretive exhibits in the new visitor centre (yes, it's the American spelling in the subheading - writing for an American audience was a key consideration). Fort McHenry is known as the birthplace of the American national anthem, written during the War of 1812.
Medieval Galleries - Kids' Quest
I devised and wrote a children’s quest through the re-interpreted spaces of Leicester's medieval Guildhall. The quest involves undertaking different activities at quest stations and recording the results on a paper trail. Children can choose from a selection of characters to follow through the quest, resulting in different outcomes and revealing different perspectives on life in medieval Leicester.
National Horse Racing Museum, Newmarket, Cambridgeshire
HLF Redevelopment Project
Working with Mather and Co Ltd, I provided guidance and text editing to the client team for this major new museum development at the home of horse racing.
Dover Castle, Kent
Great Tower Introductory Exhibition
I created the family-friendly text for this exhibition at one of English Heritage's flagship sites.
