Module Five: Curating Stories

Module Five: Curating Stories

What is the power of objects in helping to tell a story? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week we will be looking at the stories behind some everyday objects and the way that objects can be used to tell a story. We will take inspiration from some unusual exhibitions and consider the ways that the objects around us can help us to curate a particular narrative.
