Strange Objects

Wednesday 5 July 2017

We hear all the time about strange and wonderful objects found in, above, around and below the Building. These holidays, we’re opening up the Level 73 Cabinet of Curiosity and Wonder Exhibition, and we’d like YOU to curate it. In this workshop you will construct your very own curious exhibit: use your special story-hunting skills to discover crazy histories, strange facts and unbelievable secrets, then make a model of your findings. Fill your exhibit with artefacts, factoids, factual errors … it’s up to you! You now have a ready-made wonder room to spark stories whenever you’re low on inspiration.


Friday 7 July 2017

Come with us to a world of pure imagination! This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take a ride in our glass (quartz, dodecahedron, smokey bbq) elevator up and down the levels of 100 Story Building. In this workshop you will select a level, illustrate a panoramic view of the stories you find there, script a radio play using a simple story structure (fun fact: it’s how they make Pixar movies!) and then collaborate with your fellow podcasters to record your very own play.

Please note all participants in this workshop will need to complete an audio recording permission form signed by child and parents on the day.
