Copywriting commission for The Atkinson and four other northwest Egyptology collections.

The Selling Egypt project involved the following museums:

  • The Atkinson, Southport
  • Bolton Museum, Art Gallery and Aquarium
  • Towneley Hall, Burnley
  • Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery
  • West Park Museum, Macclesfield.

My work involved:

  • creating a ‘joined up narrative’, and understanding of how the five collections and collectors link together
  • writing the story, distilling the key themes, personalities and ideas from background information and images provided
  • providing a text of 2-3000 words that is accessibly written, for internal use among specialist and non-specialist staff.

Selling Egypt was funded by Strategic Support Funding from Arts Council England.
