Something unusual is happening in Kent libraries...

Lose yourself in a fictional frenzy of paperback puppetry,

Scale the shelves with a chorus of thesaurus,

Discover dance in the romance and mime in the crime (section).

The Faversham based dance-theatre company Pestiferous present their new experiment in libraries across Swale and Medway, as part of the Creative People and Places Ideas Test fund. This 20-minute performance will pop out of the shelves and surprise regular library goers, librarians and new visitors alike.  For details on when and where, see the link below.

This is an exciting and innovative approach to shaking off any preconceived attitudes of libraries by visitors - do museums need to do something similar?

If you are a museum in Medway or Swale and want to try something new and exciting like this, then the Creative People and Places Small Experiment Scheme is still open.
