Rethinking Museums and the Stories They Tell

12 November, 2020 - 22 November, 2020

This is an online event.

Museums are increasingly being called on to rethink how they display, represent and interpret objects in their care. Throughout the festival we will be posting videos, images, prompts and provocations on our social media channels, forming a critical online heritage tour of The Hunterian Museum. By calling attention to the hidden histories of empire embedded in our collections, we will propose new ways of seeing and understanding museum objects, taking a fuller view of the stories they tell.

Follow the digital tour on Twitter @UofGArts, @hunterian and @BeingHumanFest throughout #BeingHuman2020.

This event is part of the hub series organised by the University of Glasgow.
