Creation/Creating Stories

November 12 - November 22

This is an online event.

What are creation stories? How are creation stories told? This event will introduce young audiences to Indigenous story-telling and creation stories drawing on the Great North Museum: Hancock’s Indigenous collections from North America. Have a look at our series of videos on Indigenous story-telling and then, using pencils, markers, play-dough, or other crafting material at your disposal, create your own story! You can create a story about the origin of the world or imagine an alternative, new world you would like to inhabit. You will be invited to share your stories with the Museum. Suitable for ages 5-11 (KS1 and KS2).

The videos will be available throughout the Being Human festival. You will be able to access the videos here on the Great North Museum’s website.
