Tackling inequalities – Powell-Cotton Museum

Powell-Cotton Museum in Kent holds a vast collection of objects, mammal specimens, fine and decorative arts, the majority of which originate in Africa and Asia.

The museum is undertaking an ambitious programme of projects, ‘Re-imagining the Museum.’ The team are committed to telling a wider story, to enable others to share in that narrative and be a part of it’s making. The projects that make up this wider programme include ‘Colonial Critters’ and ‘Breaking out of the Museum,’ funded by AIM’s Tackling Inequalities Hallmark.

Inbal Livne, Head of Collections and Engagement, tells us what they’ve learnt so far and the lessons they can share with other AIM members looking to reinterpret their collections and work with communities and groups in new ways.
