Midnight at the Museum is a collaboration between Kate Hulme, Fraser Randall and Hastings Museum and Art Gallery. It aims to build wellbeing, creativity and literacy in children aged six to nine through storytelling. Six letters with linked creative activities tell the imaginary stories of objects in Hastings Museum and Art Gallery’s collection. In each, an animal faces a challenge and overcomes it with the help of their friends.
The stories and activities have been written by Kate Hulme, illustrated by Holly Pearce and animated by Marli Weare. Anna Atkinson/ Art on Prescription provided advice on children’s mental health and wellbeing. The project has been developed through the generous support of Arts Council England Lottery Project funding.
