World Cultures Sharing Day at Derby Museum and Art Gallery

MEG members are invited to a World Cultures Sharing Day, at Derby Museum and Art Gallery on Monday 25th September, from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

Derby Museum and Art Gallery are in the early stages of a two year co-produced exhibition to share objects from around the world, looking to understand the collection in past and current world contexts, to encourage debate and discussion and to strengthen our relationship with many the diverse communities in Derby.

A main focus of the exhibition will be the world cultures collection - Derby have a small but interesting collection of around 1,500 objects from all over the world, particularly Africa and Oceania but also Asia, the Middle East, South America and North America. Much of it is being researched for the first time for this exhibition, by a team of volunteer researchers and interested specialists.

You are invited for a day of informal discussion and activity. Derby would like to share some of the objects from store and their co-production approach with the exhibition so far. There will be opportunity to hear about other world cultures related projects going on in the UK, meet with other specialists and discuss ideas for collaboration.

The event is free and there will be light refreshments. There is a range of great cafes and sandwich shops close by for lunch.

Please contact Rachel Atherton, Co-production Curator to book your place.
