Collecting the Climate Emergency: Process and Practice

22nd April at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Museums and Heritage Sector declares a climate emergency.  We can change lightbulbs to LEDs and examine climate control, but what are the radical questions? Should we be collecting less and differently? Should museums be loaning digital artefacts? What makes an activist want to give their ephemera to a collection? A group of different voices ranging from activists to archivists discuss these questions on Earth Day 2022 and move to action.

Collecting the Climate Emergency: Process and Practice, Friday 22nd April, 12pm to 1.30pm, Online, Free
