Rebecca Wade (a recent graduate of a PhD programme, and current Associate Lecturer, at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies) will be one of six post-doctoral researchers to present their new research projects at a one-day ‘Connecting with Collections’ symposium this September in Cambridge.

You are invited to the ICS Audiovisual Heritage Meeting, funded through the University of Leeds Cultural and Creative Industries Exchange and co-hosted by Institute of Communication Studies, the Centre for Critical Studies in Museums, Galleries and Heritage and the Centre for Collaborative Heritage Research.

Mike Benson and Kathy Cremin will share their approaches to creating museums where people are free to lead at every level. They will reflect on ways of working with volunteers and partners collaboratively developed at Ryedale Folk Museum and Bede’s World which draw on tried-and-tested cooperative models, founded on giving space for individual autonomy and action.

The next Heritage Show + Tell will be hosted by the brand new Experience Barnsley, the first ever Barnsley Museum which opened at the end of June. Join us for a tour of the new museum at 4pm. We will then kick off Heritage Show + Tell at 5pm.

If you’d like to come to either the tour or the Heritage Show + Tell event, register with Helen Graham,

This exhibition hosted by the Kunsthalle of the Hypo Cultural Foundation in Munich (and curated by David Jackson, Professor of Russian and Scandinavian Art History at the University of Leeds) is a tribute to the peoples and cultures of the Nordic countries, providing an overview of late 19th and early 20th century Nordic painting.
