Hello, my name is Ayesha, and I am Collections Digitisation Assistant on the NPO Rapid Digitisation Project.
Museums can be really fun and interesting places to work, educating people about the past and stimulating their interest in what might happen in the future.
Hi everyone, back in August and September last year I shared a little bit about my experiences of exploring nature and photographing butterflies and birds in My Big Brum BioBlitz and My Big Brum BioBlitz Take Two blog posts.
I was so very excited to return to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) as a visitor when it reopened in October for a month, the visit confirmed for me that my favourite space is most definitely still the 17th Art Gallery.
While our museums and heritage sites remain close during the national lockdown, we have bought our museum activities to your home this February half term.
Despite our museums being locked up tight for Lockdown 3 we were determined to deliver a planned project with our National Portrait Gallery loan, a portrait of girls’ education activist Malala Yousafzai by Iranian-born artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat .
We have had a great term setting up our virtual streaming service to schools as we all find a way to adjust in this very strange year.
A small but significant memory from my teen years is a conversation I had with my Mother about her citizenship.
