With Elaine Addington, Open Museum Curator at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre.
Glasgow Museums is the largest museum service in the UK outside of London and operates 10 venues across the city. The civic museum collection includes over one million objects and has been described as one of the finest civic collections in Northern Europe.
The Open Museum is Glasgow Museums’ outreach team. For 30 years, they have taken objects from their collections out to communities across the city, so they can be enjoyed by everyone. One constant has been the social aspect; bringing people together to share stories and experiences; particularly those who might find it difficult to visit our museum venues. The aim is to ensure potentially excluded perspectives are included in their collections, programmes and research.
