We offer a variety of ways to engage with the collection and learn more about plastics materials and the objects made from them.
Our online resources include portfolio exercises for prospective students, an object analysis form for object-based learning, a pilot activity for exploring materials and manufacturing processes, creative writing and critical thinking exercises, as well as digital resources for schools and families.
The MoDiP collection offers a wide spectrum of objects, from the 19th, 20th & 21st centuries, which illustrate the role of plastics against social and historical contexts.

We are an AUB student team from the Creative Events Management course and we are running a competition to promote the re-launch of MoDiP's MyPlastic exhibition. The competition is open to everyone, students and the general public, for the chance to win a cash prize of £100.
You may not realise that plastic is an important part of our daily lives. The idea of the competition…
We surround ourselves with powerful objects that either spark memories of times gone by or that we would find hard to live without. They can comfort us, make our lives a little easier, or remind us of special people. In these unpredictable times of national lockdown, partial opening, and then closing down again we have decided to reissue a project which explored these emotive objects.
Due to the National lockdown this exhibition opening has been delayed. The launch date is subject to confirmation.
A family friendly exhibition exploring fun seaside leisure activities as well as the more serious issue of ocean plastics and pollution.
