Hands-on learning using a unique handling collection
Why not make a booking for your group to visit us and use our Object Dialogue Box?
The Object Dialogue Box is an artist-made handling collection tailor-made for Turner Contemporary by artist collective Hedsor. It has been crafted to reflect our history, site, the influence of JMW Turner and common themes within our exhibitions.
Originally a navigation buoy, the Object Dialogue Box contains a number of unusually customised objects that group members can handle, play with and explore together. These are guaranteed to intrigue inquisitive minds!
Whilst handling the objects, the children will use and improve their literacy skills and will also gain a better personal understanding of current exhibitions and the history surrounding Turner Contemporary. Our trained Navigators will lead open and imaginative discussions about artworks using the objects in the box.
It’s the perfect start to a creative writing exercise – the box can help to create characters, set scenes, write poems and imagine narratives.
60 minutes, £2.50 per head (minimum charge of 6 people), suitable for KS2 and above, all abilities, particularly suited to SEN groups.
