Explore the themes of our Show Me the Money exhibition with your group
The museum’s displayed the changing exhibition Show Me the Money from Saturday 11 July 2015 to Sunday 24 January 2016. Learning groups can continue to book any of our Show Me the Money themed Learning sessions for their school or community learners.
The exhibition looked at how the financial world has been portrayed through illustration, photography and other visual media over the last three centuries in Britain and the United States. It asked the questions: what does ‘the market’ look like? What does money really stand for? How can the abstractions of high finance be made visible? Who is finance for?
Explore the exhibition with a professional writer to inspire your learners to devise their own creative response to the world of finance and politics. Outcomes can be tailored to the group’s needs, and could include poetry, lexicons or monologues.
Choose from a range of artist-led workshops that explore key themes and questions asked in the exhibition. Inspired by the exhibition, learners will produce original art work to represent their thoughts on finance and politics.
The Learning Team produced self-led resources for school groups and community groups to use to accompany the exhibition. Please see our Show Me the Money exhibition resources page for more information.
