They may be unloved by many, but CMCI’s Dr Anna Woodham has been doing her bit for those overlooked museum collections that can still have an emotional appeal.
For example, she took part in the “Who Cares: Interventions in ‘unloved’ museum collections” conference at London’s Science Museum, and also a LATE event at the same venue.
Anna reports that around 4700 people attended the LATE evening. Activities included object handling and “boring bingo” from young curators. Our pictures include the public “fun vote” for unloved collections with votes recorded on the back of the team’s t-shirts.
