People, Place & Power: Repatriation in Practice: Online Workshop

28 May 10:00 - 12:00

Museums are engaging with the question of repatriation more than ever before, but what does it take for collecting institutions to commit to the return of cultural heritage items and ancestral human remains to their communities? In this workshop Stephen Welsh will draw on his professional experience of participating in several repatriations, including the recent unconditional return of 43 secret sacred and ceremonial objects to Australia’s First Nations peoples from Manchester Museum, and consider what fundamental changes need to happen to support this vital work.

This session will be led by Independent Curator Stephen Welsh.
