Black History Month

Young people explored oral history traditions and beliefs: focusing on a Native American tribe who believed humans had originally emerged from shells. Their fascination with this idea developed into a large scale installation exhibited at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, during Black History Month. The group created and recorded their own stories: heard as a whispered audio track emanating from inside the illuminated shells.
