Collecting the Troubles and Beyond
More museums are committing to reflect the world around them in their collecting practices. The objects and narratives that museums collect, display and explore, can be painful, controversial and contested. In this Knowledge Exchange we learn about a project aimed at collecting material relating directly to political developments and conflict experienced during the "Troubles" and the careful engagement of various community groups.
Karen Logan from National Museums Northern Ireland will present on ‘Collecting the Troubles and Beyond’.
