Matters of Care: Museum futures in times of planetary precarity (1)
How can ethnographic and world cultures museums use their collections and galleries as spaces which create active discussion around the impact of humans on the planet, while also highlighting what long-term perspectives can tell us about sustainability for developing positive futures? The project TAKING CARE places ethnographic and world cultures museums at the centre of the search for strategies to address issues regarding the future of the planet.
All public webinars will be recorded and available on the Pitt Rivers YouTube channel and the Taking Care website after the live event.
