It was a really good way of starting this new work with a bang.

A Museum Trust with a board of Trustees.
The Scarborough Museums Trust looks after a large arts collection within its art gallery and local history and geology artefacts in the Rotunda building on the seafront.
The Trust seeks to care for, develop and interpret its collections, information and assets in order to help shape the future, encourage participation and provide the best possible experience for local people whilst looking towards leaving an enhanced legacy for future generations.
Scarborough went through big organisational changes during the course of the programme, resulting in a shorter total engagement period. Given a short timeframe, the team, alongside BAC producers decided to apply the Scratch process to an existing project: to engage with more and diverse young people.
In February 2016, artists kicked off brand new engagement workshop days with the local Prevention Service and Virtual School – scratching this first step of a partnership.
