I'm now collaborating with Kilmartin Museum's Redevelopment team to develop themes and interpretations in support of a Heritage Lottery Fund Round 2 funding application. The aim of the project is to transform Kilmartin Museum through the construction of state of the art facilities, including exhibitions, a Collections store, and research and education spaces, thereby securing its future as a major heritage hub on Scotland's west coast.
At a series of meetings in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Kilmartin I've been communicating Neolithic and Bronze Age archaeology to project partners, including Reiach and Hall Architects and exhibition designers Bright 3D. It has been fantastic to discuss the possibilities of how current interpretations of prehistoric landscapes and monuments might be communicated to wider audiences through the convergence of architecture, artefacts and dynamic multimedia.
My consultancy role follows on from previous collaborations with Kilmartin Museum, which have included photography, film making and the Living Symbols community project. Earlier in the year I also contributed to the development of the Regional Archaeological Research Framework for Argyll (see .
The results of the Heritage Lottery Fund application will be announced in 2018. For further information, please see the Kilmartin Museum website.
