Museums and collections


This discussion based session examines the relationship between museums and indigenous peoples, as well as current issues with collection, curation and repatriation. Students will learn how the collections come to the Museum and how we navigate the ethics of display and access for indigenous communities.

Duration: 1.5 hours

Session Format: A museum teacher will lead the first 45minutes of the session.  Students will then have a chance to independently investigate the galleries and conduct their own object research.

Available: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. All Seasons.
