Penlee Takeover

On Thursday 10th October six of our Year 9 Silver Arts Award students headed down to Penlee Museum in Penzance to meet with the gallery director and education officers. This was the first meeting to discuss a Mounts Bay Academy ‘Takeover’ of the museum on Friday November 22nd as a part of national ‘museum takeover’ day. The project is linked to the Trinity Arts Award programme, and the website.



As a part of their Silver Leadership Unit, the six students will be coordinating a day and evening of live art, music, dance and film in the Museum on Friday November 22nd. It will be a public event featuring the artistic talents of lots of Mounts Bay students and coincides with the last day of the current Graham Sutherland exhibition, which will provide the inspiration for our own input.


More details to be published soon…
