Join us for this week’s online talk:  Diversifying Museums in Wales – Rethinking Collections and Communities by Dr Marian Gwyn, Wednesday 12 June 2024 

Local museums are the cornerstones of Wales’s communities. But just how representative are they of the country’s increasingly diverse population? And do the stories told in them truly reflect the richness of the heritage they hold? This talk explores the massive programme of change that is currently being undertaken in museums to deliver the Welsh Government’s Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan, ensuring museums across the nation remain relevant and inclusive in the 21st century.   

Dr Marian Gwyn is a heritage consultant with many years’ experience in working with cross-cultural heritage sites across the UK. She is currently leading an innovative programme funded by the Welsh Government supporting local museums in Wales to develop robust and long-lasting change.
