New resources on Museum Ethnographers Group website

The Museum Ethnographers Group (MEG) Arts Council England funded project 'Engaging Curators', came to its conclusion at the end of 2013. The project sought to promote personal and institutional reflection upon the abstract and actual nature of collaborative practice, particularly in regard to curatorial involvement with community work. During two challenging workshops we aimed to think through and document how ethnographic collections are used in community engagement, and the role of curators within that. 

The outcomes of these workshops in the form of case studies are now available in the resources section of the MEG website. We hope that the resources to come out of the project will foster open discussions and reflection on practice and projects. We hope, too, that these documents will provide information and advice for new projects that our membership undertake in the future.
