'Caring for Here and There' Workshop at the Pitt Rivers Museum

The upcoming Taking Care Workshop, "Caring for Here and There", will take place at the Pitt Rivers Museum 26th - 28th June.

The objective of this workshop is to overcome the Eurocentric approach to conservation by developing innovative strategies that bring cultural care and preservation together. By sharing practice around analytical techniques, ethics, and understanding the needs of objects from an indigenous perspective, the aim is to progress preservation infrastructure within participating museums as well as communities locally and internationally.
