Considering collections’ futures

A project that develops new practice around the Kenyan and Nigerian collections at the Horniman Museum and Gardens in London, Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge, Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford and World Museum Liverpool.

There are nearly 25,000 objects from Kenya and Nigeria in the collections. We would like to find out more about them and develop a set of actions about how they should be best cared for in the future.

Would you like to help?

Are you:

Interested in the collections?

Kenyan or Nigerian – based on the African continent or in the diaspora?

We will provide online access to the collections, a research toolkit & support to get you started as a community collections researcher. There is an honorarium for the work you produce & the information will be used to improve knowledge about the collections and also feed into a report onto the futures of the collections.

Register your interest in becoming a community researcher and we will get back to you.
