Join us for an insightful in person workshop looking at collections-based co-curation.
The morning will focus on the innovative Embedding Diversity in our Collections programme at Walsall with Julie Brown, Collections Curator, including Here and Queer and Pride and Priviledge. Jon Sleigh, Freelance Learning Curator Consultant will be speaking about engaging new communities and legacy. The day will also include a tour of the current Class Act display by members of the community panel.
The afternoon presentations will focus on two case studies: Collecting Home at Royal Crown Derby with Alison Solomon and Dr Elizabeth Woledge and Creative Placemaking and public programming at the Royal Shakespeare Company Collection with Robyn Greenwood. There will be opportunity within a practical session for you to think about how you might approach co-curation in your museum.
