M+ Rover 2016–17: Travelling Creative Studio

M+ Rover: Travelling Creative Studio is the first major free school outreach programme organised by M+ since 2016. The 8 metre-long customised trailer is a pop-up creative studio that tours to secondary schools and community spaces during the academic year, from February to June 2017. Schools receive an original M+ teaching pack, which expands upon the creative spirit of M+ Rover. 

M+ Rover is like a space expedition to an unknown planet, taking students into uncharted creative territory. The programme emphasises participatory art practice; students and artists collaborate. This experience of contemporary visual culture encourages interpersonal interactions, dialogue, and exploration of the possibilities of the creative process.

M+ Rover features an exhibition that evolves as it travels from school to school; students contribute to the ever-changing and evolving show. The exhibition is open to all students on the activity day; participating students can also visit community spaces with M+ Rover and initiate a dialogue with the public. 

Each year, M+ commissions cultural practitioners—artists, architects, designers, photographers, and filmmakers—to participate in the programme. In 2017, we are collaborating with local illustrator and comic writer Rainbow Leung. For more information about M+ Rover 2015–16, please click here.

Since 2012, the M+ Learning and Interpretation team has devised a number of educational initiatives for the Mobile M+ exhibition series that targeted teachers, students, teenagers, families, and those with special needs. This year, the team launched two programmes—M+ Summer Camp 2016 and M+ Rover 2015–16. For information on previous programmes and learning materials, please click here.
