With Dr. Campbell Price, Curator of Egypt and Sudan, The Manchester Museum, ITP UK Partner
Campbell Price is Curator of Egypt and Sudan at Manchester Museum. He joined the Manchester Museum in 2011 as Curator of Egypt and Sudan. His responsibilities include care of the Museum’s 18,000 Egyptology objects and making these accessible to a wide variety of audiences.
Manchester Museum has, for the past 6 months, been pioneering ‘Manchester Museum in Quarantine‘, as a way of bringing collections and conversations to visitors unable to visit physically during the COVID crisis. As curator responsible for Egypt and Sudan, Campbell has rediscovered the power of social media channels – particularly a weekly ‘Egyptology in Lockdown’ broadcast on ‘Periscope’, Twitter’s streaming service. Building on this work, he is now embarking on a funded project to connect Manchester’s Egyptology collections with vulnerable audiences they have been starting to reach out to in Lockdown.
