Need / Make / Use Day 2013

UPDATE! 1 September
The sun shone and 1600 people came to make, handle, dance, drum, watch, browse, eat and drink. Thanks to everyone for making NMU Day 2013 such a success. You can find event photos on our Flickr page.

Need / Make / Use describes the cycle of necessity, ideas, design, experimentation and production that has driven technological change and innovation in all cultures from the deep past to the present day - essentially, how people USE the things they have to MAKE the things they NEED!

Need / Make / Use Day (Saturday 31 August 2013) is a chance for people of all ages to get hands-on with some of their ideas about the collections at the Pitt Rivers Museum. Who made that object? What for? How and with what materials? Do we use something similar today? 

We hope you will come along and join us for a day of fun, creativity and discovery. NMU Day is a FREE event and very much a collaborative effort, so we'd like to thank all the following who will be exhibiting, demonstrating, performing, providing refreshments or who have supported the event in some way:
