About the Event

Session dates:

Monday              20 September                  14:00-15:30

Thursday            23 September                  10:30-12:00


These facilitated sessions are designed for the museums workforce, and will consult around the 6 themed areas of the consultation for Empire, Slavery, and Scotland’s Museums: Collections and Interpretation; Education (curriculum); Participation; HR/Workforce; Research; and the Museum Proposal.

The goal of these sessions is two-fold: to understand where participants are in terms of addressing the legacies of slavery, empire, and colonialism in their spaces and through their collections; and to explore what training, systems, standards, or other supports might need to be put into place in order to help museums to embrace anti-racist practice.
