The Digital Maker Club was a 10-week project at Ulster Museum. It offered young people the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills including laser cutting, virtual reality, photogrammetry and exhibition planning. The group were given access to a number of unique collections at Ulster Museum and met numerous curators such as Dr Mike Simms, Curator of Natural Sciences and Charlotte Mc Reynolds, Curator of Costume and Fashion.

One Eye on the Past Exhibition
Participants curated an exhibition entitled ‘One Eye on the Past’, showcasing the amazing work they had created through the programme. The pop-up showcase took over the Ulster Museum’s Windows of Our World Gallery, and was seen by over 2,000 visitors.
“It was so much better than what I thought it was going to be, as the staff are exceptional in that they let participants lead with their own ideas and are so accommodating to our visions and what we want to try. Being able to work closely with museum staff and learn from curators has been amazing. I have never gotten so much out of a project and my Saturdays will be a lot duller!”Niamh Kelly, 21, Belfast
