Out of the Frame

As part of a unique partnership with the Wallace Collection museum, we are taking specially created resource boxes containing themed materials from the collection to care homes across Bristol.


Aims of the project:

  • To reach older people in care home settings outside London, enabling access to the Wallace Collection.

  • The creation of six themed ‘loan boxes ‘to be lent to care homes and day centres as an innovative way to facilitate an experience of the museum.

  • To provide care staff and volunteers with training on delivering art and heritage sessions using the loan boxes.

  • To enable care homes to deliver their own sessions to stimulate learning, discussions and reminiscence with residents.

  • The learners are given an opportunity to visit a museum.
