Elevenses – Wednesday 16 March

Tea Cup with biscuit

Addressing the legacies of colonialism and slavery

How do we develop and use research which helps us understand collections and historic sites in honest and more inclusive ways? We’ll be talking to curators about links between museums, the former colonies of the British Empire, slavery and the Transatlantic slave trade.

Insightful, interactive and informal, come along to gain new insights from our guests, meet colleagues from the region, and connect with the MDY team. Everyone who works and volunteers in museums in our region is most welcome, including museum freelancers who want to stay connected during this time.
