From 6 June - 31 July 2013

First time out is a one-off collaboration between 10 museums, galleries and arts venues, each one showcasing a treasure from their collection that until now have been kept behind the scenes for research.

Throughout June, in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Foyer, you can see the 'Fool's Bauble', a prop from our collection from the 2007 production of King Lear. This prop will then be swapped and go to the Horniman Museum in July as they bring us the 'Dzunuk'wa mask' from the Kwakwaka'wakw people on the Pacific Northwest Coast.

Objects tell us different stories depending on your perspective, about past environments, cultures, innovations and events. First Time Out is a chance to share and explore different takes on the same object.
