Putting an Eco Lens on Your Things
How can any objects be used to connect people with ideas about the Earth crisis, by putting an Eco Lens on your collections? How have some museums developed new approaches to interpretation that stir thinking about climate change and environmental harms, to learn from the past and imagine regenerative possibilities for the future? This presentation will reflect on some practice by Climate Museum UK and its partner museums, where artists, curators and audience groups are illuminating their collections in fresh and relevant ways, inspiring sustainability shifts in the museums and their communities.
