‘Displays of Power’ Community Takeover

November 23, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This family friendly event will be a celebratory and creative afternoon that will change your perception of the natural world. Here you can create your own museum interpretation inspired by the ‘Displays of Power’ exhibition that looks at where the animals in the collection came from.

Whose voice takes pride of place in the narrative of the natural history museum? Rarely those of communities affected by the collection, acquisition, display and interpretation of museum objects. The ‘Displays of Power’ exhibition at the Grant Museum of Zoology explores the lesser known stories of our relationship to the natural world as community groups have been invited to takeover the museum and share their stories of power, empire and natural history.
