Project Buzz is a creative arts project involving twelve different community groups of children and young people around Exeter. Their artwork was created between summer 2022 and 2023 and brings RAMM’s insect collections to life, with a conservation message for future generations.

The project offered local children and young people aged 4 to 18 the chance to meet and learn from local practicing artists, and enable conversations and connections with the natural world through the museums’ resources, artist interpretations and talks by Devon Wildlife Trust.

The exhibition includes a lively collection of insect swarms: from oversized flowers and bees, protest marching ants, flying minibeasts, grids of centipedes and millipedes, crawling beetles, colourful butterfly and moth prints and a short dance film by Exeter College A level students.

Artwork produced by children and young people from:
Balloons, Beacon Centre, Cranbrook Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, Cranbrook Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, Devon Home Education Network, Exeter College Dance and Textile students.

Community artists:
Alistair Lambert, Amanda McCormack, Naomi Vincent from Naturemake, Rosie Stiling from Double Elephant Print Workshop.

Funded with thanks by Arts Council England.
