The Rumble Museum is hosted at Cheney School in East Oxford, and its collections are spread through the school corridors as well as being embedded into the curriculum in a variety of engaging projects, workshops and lessons.
We are holding a large community Festival of the Future on March 25th 2020 from 3.30 until 6pm at Cheney School to celebrate the Rumble Museum at Cheney and explore future technology, environmental impact, medicine and more.
As part of this celebration, we are creating an exciting new piece of public art in the form of a model Robot Trail around the site. These robot models will each have their theme designed by Cheney students to represent different ideas about the future and and they will be permanent so that students, staff, and the wider community can explore them for years to come. They will be striking, colourful and educational works of art which will inspire the very diverse community of East Oxford and beyond.
Each robot will cost about £600 and we are planning to have eight robots in our trail (as well as creating eight smaller ones for local primaries to theme). You can see the designs for the eight robots here.
We are looking for businesses and organisations who might like to sponsor a robot by providing some or all of the costs towards the model. This sponsorship would be stated on a sign next to the robot as well as on our website, and on the trail maps and brochures we produce.
If you would be interested in supporting this initiative at such an exciting juncture in the museum's development, we would be delighted to hear from you.
