All in a Day’s Work for our Citizen Curators

A view of the Defence of Lucknow area in the museum.

Our 2020 cohort of Citizen Curators have settled in quickly to the programme, enjoying sessions at the Royal Cornwall Museum and Falmouth Art Gallery. They have already covered topics such as telling objects’ stories and 2D / 3D digitisation of artefacts. 

Back at the museum the group have got stuck into their research project and are planning to reinterpret the museum’s collection relating to Lucknow and Cawnpore in 1857.

Watch this space for updates on how they are getting on, and do come and visit the new Indian Mutiny displays when they open in Easter 2020.
