Buxton Museum and Art Gallery: Objects looking for new homes.

 Buxton Museum and Art Gallery are looking to rehome by free transfer, a number of items from the World Cultures collection that formed part of the former Derbyshire School Library Service. The project is funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, and seeks to find sustainable outcomes for the collection within accredited museums for the continued use of the collection in the public realm for exhibitions, engagement projects and research. The project is guided by the Museums Association Code of Ethics.

The Museum currently has 17 Japanese prints and paintings dating from the 19th to 20th century, and 308 miscellaneous ethnographic objects from around the world and ranging in date from the 19th to 20th century.


If you would like more information about the project and the items and would like to apply for them via an Expression of Interest form, please contact the project lead, Bret Gaunt at: Bret.Gaunt@derbyshire.gov.uk


Closing dates for the applications are:


Japanese prints and paintings: 5pm Friday 25 September.


Miscellaneous ethnography: 5pm Friday 16 October
