Reliably informed

Growing up watching the 90’s cyber themed, sci-fi films I was brought up to believe that all virtual stuff in the future would be quite seedy. However, it turns out those movie forecasts failed to take into account that people would actually like something a little more cultural as well, which is being currently demonstrated during this pandemic as creative organisations move all that inspired us in the real world to the internet. One of these organisations is Museums Northumberland bait who work in partnership to support folk in South East Northumberland to create and take part in inspiring and high-quality arts experiences. 

Every Tuesday in June at 3:30pm (via their Facebook page) they will be offering an online programme of virtual cultural Experiences, chosen by people from South East Northumberland, artists and the Museums Northumberland bait team, to enjoy from the comfort and safety of your own home. These will all be followed by a post-event online chat to discuss all the loveliness that was taken in.

Coming up they have an online screening of A Plea For Common Ownership on 9th June, a short film from the MNB archives, made in collaboration with the people of Ashington focusing on the Ashington Mine Workers Union banner. That will be followed by A Virtual Tour of The Laing Art Gallery of 16th June, a trip across to Connecticut for a 3D virtual tour of the home of Mark Twain on 23rd June and finally an online edition of Turn the Page Artists Book Fair on 30th June.
