It's now a month to Museums at Night, and all the attendant events that brings. I love this idea, and having had the chance this evening to wander around the Pitt Rivers after hours, I am reminded of the evocative power of these spaces at night time, without the disturbance of the day. I'm saddened, too, that Leicester is still somewhat lacking in it's events plan for the weekend.
I hope that this map, will lead you on a journey somewhere and somewhen magical and strange. If you can't take part in a Museums at Night event, I'd like you to share here what you would do, given the opportunity to experience, or organise, a night time foray into the museum of your choice.
Have wonderful, dark wanderings.
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
