In April 2013 the Pitt Rivers Museum was taken over for an evening of music, movement and masked fun. Thee University of Oxford anthropology students worked closely with Museum staff to curate and host an alternative social evening for young people. The theme was masquerade, encouraging guests to reconsider the global mask collections - and related music and film collections - through a programme of inspirational dance, imaginative tours, live music and getting handy with paper, glue and scissors! With the lights dimmed, brilliant colours framing the ceiling, and cocktails aplenty, more than 200 guests soaked up the unique atmosphere that is the Pitt Rivers after dark...
The Twilight Takeover initiative is part of the Museum's Heritage Lottery Funded VERVE project, which aims to combine gallery improvements with innovative public programming (http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/needmakeuse.html).
