Film: How Can You Decolonise Museums?

How can you decolonise museums? This presentation shares how Birmingham Museum collaborated with local cultural activists with a strong record of challenging museums to create an exhibition that brought new perspectives and voices to a space that is perhaps seen as ‘white’.

Through many deeply uncomfortable conversations they forged a radical narrative approach to display that put Black and POC audiences at the centre and questioned the colonial record of the city’s godfather.

Can you decolonise museum spaces? Find out in this fantastic presentation.
