Impact of the British Empire and Transatlantic slavery on museums and collections

Understand the relationships between the British Empire, Transatlantic slavery, and the British economy, with a focus on Yorkshire and the Humber, and how colonialism and slave trade narratives have shaped museum collections and interpretation. You will start to apply this to your museum using an object from your museum.

This session will support you if you are seeking to understand, or advocate for, why and how your museum could address colonialist or untold, diverse narratives within your collections or interpretation.
