‘Creating a Stir’ is a Learning & Engagement project running as part of the wider HLF Voices From the Workhouse redevelopment at Gressenhall. Like ‘Collaborate’, it serves as a good example of how museums can inspire and work with a large variety of groups in different and creative ways.
If you would like to know more about ‘Creating a Stir’ or other Learning & Engagement initiatives, please have a look at the ‘Creating a Stir’ blog or contact Gressenhall’s Learning & Engagement Officer, Rachel Duffield.
Rachel delivered a Creating a Stir session at Gressenhall as part of the Collaborate Inspiration Day.
