In Spring 2017, rarely displayed artworks from the Camden Art Collection were 3D-printed to provide a new way of looking at this fascinating collection. These 3D prints formed a ‘Museum in a Box’ which went on tour to Camden’s libraries and Great Ormond Street Hospital. During workshops children and their families could touch the 3D models and listen to artists’ audio interpretations of each object. The combination of the objects and audio then inspired stories, poems and sounds in response to the collection. Local resident Angela shares her experience of taking part in the Museum in a Box workshops with her son Lorenzo.
