About the Event

Please note these particular sessions are for people of colour working within the museum sector.

Session dates:

Thursday            9 September                    10:30-12:00

Tuesday              14 September                  14:00-15:30


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.
