About Jersey Muse
Jersey Muse is a series of cultural events sponsored by Orchid Communications and other organisations, hosted by Jersey Heritage at its most evocative and visually stunning locations around the Island, it comes as a direct response to the wishes of young Islanders wanting to engage with their cultural roots through a new and vibrant programme of events designed for members of the organisation.
The first Thursday of June launched Muse MUSIC at Jersey Museum, featuring the mighty Pirate Party Brigade, Laura Robertson, Rosie Barrett, Danny Evans Photography, Crapuad Wear and the king of Beans himself, Hedley Le Maistre (complete with a supply of personally signed Jersey Royals…). This was the first event of many, including Muse WORD (second Thursday of the month) which saw a bus of people whisked off to a secret location to take part in a topical debate with refreshments provided by Liberation Ale, and Muse FILM (Third Thursday of the month) where members enjoyed a free private viewing of the 80’s classic – Blade Runner at Jersey Museum’s private cinema.
Muse is central to Jersey Heritage’s commitment to create an engaging and educational programme of events and exhibitions that will stir islanders’ emotional connection with Jersey’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and is the direct result of research carried out by Jersey Heritage into how to connect with as many age groups as possible.
Jeremy Swetenham, Commercial Director at Jersey Heritage said: ‘Muse is a thoroughly new concept for Jersey Heritage. Not only is it in response to the enthusiasm of a young adult audience but the superb programming and content that is being provided entirely by volunteers and we are enormously grateful for their capable support. Our hope is that Muse will develop via a thoroughly creative interaction between heritage and contemporary culture that will define our heritage in years to come. It represents a fantastic opportunity for members’ events delivered by members for members and making use of our unique spaces in a wholly creative way. We are expecting Muse to be very popular and would encourage people to become members so they can fully immerse themselves in the experience and range of VIP benefits.
