At Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, work is underway to create an innovative World Stories gallery, opening 23 June 2012 to mark the London 2012 Olympic Games. The gallery will display Brighton Museum’s stunning collections from Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific alongside contemporary art and artefacts.
The gallery is being developed in partnership with young people from Brighton & Hove, and with the active involvement of communities from around the world. Images, sound and film will be used to bring the displays to life and temporary displays, hands-on activities and a comfortable seating area will be included in the design.
The World Stories gallery is one of many national projects that make up the Stories of the World programme: an official part of the Cultural Olympiad for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
You can find out more about Brighton & Hove City Council's programme of events for the Olympic and Paralympic Games at its 2012 Olympic pages.
