Blue Sky Museums: Vote for your Favourites

3rd September 2020

What are the Blue Sky Ideas that you remember most?

The last of the Ideas for our Blue Sky Museums project were published last week. It has been a joy and a privilege to read them all and we have come across the work of many artists with whom we have not previously engaged. The Arts&Heritage team and the museums thank all of you who have taken the time to develop some fantastic responses.

This sheer enjoyment has prompted us to offer additional profile (and additional financial support) to those artists whose Blue Sky Ideas have stayed with you, resonated with the museum and embraced ‘the Impossible’. You have a month in which to read them all and let us know which ones you remember the most – we don’t want to restrict ourselves to the Team favourites! Please submit your votes by Wednesday 30 September.

You can look through all of the fantastic Ideas submitted to Blue Sky Museums on our website, here:

Once you have chosen up to three favourites, please vote for them here:
