World Stories: Young Voices  

World Stories: Young Voices is a celebration of Brighton Museum’s world art collection which has been redisplayed with the involvement of young people, members of source communities and creative professionals. It is the South East’s flagship museum project for the London 2012 Festival and part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

Brighton Museum holds one of only six ethnographic collections in England designated as being of national importance. It includes over 13,000 objects from Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific ranging from several thousand years old to the present day.

The gallery includes objects not previously on public display alongside major new purchases and commissions. Young people have worked alongside museum staff to bring their own perspectives to the displays.
