Recycle Archaeology: Creative alternatives for heritage disposal
Museums are coming up against dwindling storage space for ever growing collections, while many artefacts are finding themselves in the skip as a result of not finding a home in a museum in the first place. In response to the archaeological archive’s crisis, Recycle Archaeology aims to provide an alternative to archaeological disposals, connecting artefacts with community-led creative projects for artistic and educational reuse in order to keep objects out of landfill. This initiative brings together museums, communities and artists to develop new creative reuses for discarded artefacts, engaging the public with heritage in ways outside of established collections policies.
