Hello! I’m Rosie Clarke, and I’m Campaigns Officer at Culture24.

If you’re from a museum, gallery, library or heritage site and you call our office, I’m one of the friendly voices on the other end of the phone who can talk you through uploading photos, listing your events and exhibitions, or tagging your educational resources so teachers can find them.

This is the fourth year I’ve coordinated Museums at Night, which is a fantastic project to work on.

One of my proudest moments: seeing Museums at Night make it into a Modern Toss cartoon in the Guardian! (c) http://www.moderntoss.com

For my first Museums at Night experience in 2009 I visited Cambridge Museum of Technology to report on their unforgettable Night Fever event, which told the story of the battle against cholera through stage make-up, social history and dramatic performances.

My first gallery sleepover was at Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion, where I took part in artist Luke Jerram’s Dream Director experiment, which attempted to give sleeping participants epic dreams through the power of science and sound art.

Things I like about my job include our team, who have become my friends as well as colleagues and all share a great sense of humour; being able to help people who aren’t sure about something and call or email me; writing articles and feeling a warm glow of excitement when I see my byline; and discovering amazing stories behind museum collections, and the wonderfully enthusiastic people who work in the sector.

I also love working in an office in the North Laine, in the centre of Brighton, with all kinds of shops, cafes and galleries on our doorstep (not to mention the Brighton Pavilion!)

Nick Stockman is our Campaigns Manager, and has been with Culture24 since 2010. He formerly headed up the Brighton Fringe for 6 years, and before that, managed bands and music venues.

He says, “Museums at Night is at such an exciting stage at its development. After the most successful festival ever, with over 400 venues taking part and over £3m worth of media coverage, the next few years are going to see the campaign bloom and I’m very pleased to be here at Culture24 alongside Rosie, steering that progress.”

  1. Hi there. Great idea, which I just learned of. I was trying to find a place to look up listings of places open in and around London but it isn’t obvious to me. Can you please point me in the right direction? Many thanks

  2. Hi there!

    You can see all Museums at Night 2012 event listings by clicking the button at the top right of this blog saying “Museums at Night 18-20 May – Plan your weekend”.
