Which stories should museums tell in their galleries? Whose voices are heard? 

Museum Remix is the University of Cambridge Museums’ experiment in museum storytelling. Since 2018, we have been working with our audiences through creative workshops and online to explore how museums can become more inclusive and relevant spaces, and try out innovative ways to tell stories about our collections.

Purple and grey painting showing a woman and a centaur fighting. The figures are fragmentary. The woman, on the left, wears a draped dress and is shown with her left elbow up, knocking the face of the bearded centaur in grey as he attempts to grab at her. Lines behind the pair evoke the impact and force of the woman's arm.
