Getting ready for the opening launch tonight at the Oriental Museum! Everything is set up and ready to go! It has been a great week so far and we hope to successfully celebrate the opening of our art exhibition exploring a new insight into Chinese diversity… Stay tuned to find out how it went with pictures to follow!


This afternoon at the museum was exciting.
There was a very scared bat in the museum offices we had to make sure that it didn't fly into the museum as it could be damaging to the artefacts.
We would also like to say a big thank you to Iris, who is 9, she tried out our activity sheets, she had a good time at the exhibition and the museum she said "I have never had so much fun in a museum before".


Today the team have been cutting out laminating and trimming 144 descriptive words for an inter-active, there are more to be done tomorrow. Look out for the 'Diverse Descriptions' inter-active when you visit the museum.


Day 3 of installation - interactives going up today :)
