Nisa’s charity supports the Kids in Museums initiative

Published on 21 December 2015

Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally charity has supported an initiative to encourage more children to visit museums this month. The charity donated a huge £3,000 to Hull-based Creative Briefs for their ‘Walking with Dinostars’ project, which will allow local children the opportunity to design a new exhibit at the Dinostar Museum in Hull.

With guidance from the design team at Creative Briefs, a group of six children between the ages of seven and ten will make key decisions in the design, build, installation, and promotion of a new exhibit at the museum on Humber Street. The new exhibit will feature four artifacts from the BBC’s 'Walking with Dinosaurs' series and will feature in the main museum for two months.

A ‘Design a Dinosaur’ competition was held as part of the national Kids in Museums Day initiative, giving children the chance to register their interest in the opportunity before ‘auditioning’ for a place on the design team. The selected final six will work alongside Creative Briefs to create the new exhibition and learn valuable creative and digital skills, as well as seeing their designs and ideas brought to life.

The project was left without funding when the initial financial support fell through just nine days before the project was due to launch. With primary schools, youth clubs and other young members of the public enthusiastic to take part, Making a Difference Locally offered to support the project with the £3,000 donation after experiencing Creative Brief’s commitment to the children and their entrepreneurial spirit first-hand.

Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity aims to benefit people in the local community. The charity raises money to be donated to good causes from the sale of items from Nisa’s award-winning own-label Heritage range and a number of branded products in store.
