Edmund Gardner Dazzle Ship lit up for Night of Heritage Light

Events 2 Oct 15

In a collaboration between National Museums Liverpool, 14-18 Now, Tate Liverpool and the Biennial, the Edmund Gardner was repainted as a Dazzle Ship back in 2014.

Last night, 1st October, as part of a nationwide event called the Night of Heritage Light the Dazzle Ship was lit up for just an hour. You couldn’t have picked a better night for it. The sky was beautifully clear with deep dusk blues and a crisp autumn chill in the air.

The event focused on lighting up several UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the UK. The idea was to promote lighting as both an art form and a science. read more

House of Memories

Client work, Events 17 Apr 13

Apart from running some of the best museums in the country, National Museums Liverpool also work with the community on such heartwarming projects such as House of Memories. I was asked to document one of their events before Christmas and it was lovely. People with dementia were welcomed at the Museum of Liverpool with tea, cakes and activities designed to help trigger memories. Guests were invited to have their photo taken and produce a photobook to take home.  People were singing, dancing and laughing. There was a collection of memorabilia designed to trigger memories. read more
