This weekend was significant for Scroope Design.
On Friday July 19th, the interpretative exhibition Kitchen Power was launched by Mrs Mary Robinson on level D of the National Museum of Ireland. It tells the story of the impact of electricity on the lives of women in 1960s rural Ireland. It was developed in collaboration with Dr Sorcha O'Brien of Kingston University and Noel Campbell, Curator at the National Museum. The interpretative design is based on the 1960s promise of the "better, happier and healther life," as depicted in the advertising and trade exhibitions of that time. The design is also influenced by it's location, following on from the permanent galleries telling the story of folklife which drew to a close with the advent of electricity. The visitor journeys from 1850s post famine era to modern times.
