Primary School Workshops for Years 3 - 6
Self-guided visits are also available to book for school and college groups of all ages.
About the exhibition
Marvel at centuries of human innovation as writing enabled progress and opened doors to expression and art. Our interactive exhibition gives you the chance to reflect on works of genius that wouldn’t exist without the writing traditions of civilisations past: be dazzled by gold-laden Japanese calligraphy. Study Mozart’s musical flourishes. Pore over Alexander Fleming’s pioneering notebook. Each of these written records carries the history of writing in their every stroke.
Finally, reflect on writing’s future and the role you’ll play in an increasingly digital world. Will we abandon pens and keyboards for voice and video messaging, or continue to carry the traditions of ancient times with us?
