Rural Voices – The Rural Museums Network Seminar Series
8 October, 12 November, 10 December 2021 

The Rural Museums Network is pleased to launch its new Seminar Series – tailoring contemporary thinking and practice to those who work with rural life collections, providing practical suggestions and support.

Join us for monthly tea break seminars this October, November and December to hear expert panels discuss how rural collections and rural sites can better include a wider range of voices in the stories they tell by looking at Gypsy, Roma and Travelling communities; decolonisation; and LBTQ+ lives.

These sessions will be run on the Zoom platform and are FREE to members and non-members.
