The UK Medical Collections Group ‘Medicine at the Movies’ project invited adult learners to use medical museums as inspiration to make a series of short films. Learners used the museums’ collections and spaces to develop their own stories about medicine and health.
The project demonstrates how museums can be accessible and stimulating learning environments. It also provides evidence that when people are invited to create their own interpretations of museums, the results build stronger community connections and lead to lasting partnerships.
Delivering a film-making project brings challenges and might be a new approach for many museums. This guide provides an outline of how similar projects might run.
