The Museum of Birds and Beasts

Artists Sharon Whooley and Tess Leak will hold a public meeting on Bere Island on Tuesday 8th May at 2.00pm in the Community Centre to discuss their project the Museum of Birds and Beasts. The artists will explore how storytelling can play a vital role in the wellbeing of older residents.

The artists collaborated with the Museum of Country Life, the National Folklore Collection and master basket maker Joe Hogan, exploring the folklore and artefacts from these remarkable national collections to draw on participants’ experiences of working and living in connection with the natural world.
