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.
We are offering a series of three, new, FREE online sessions to develop your understanding and capability in ethnically equitable practice in museums. These sessions particularly focus on addressing equity and equality in relation to race and ethnicity.
These sessions are stand-alone and will complement the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion cohort in January-March 2022.
You can book into one, any, or all of these, in addition to or separately from the cohort, according to your museum’s needs
