A ‘collaborative space for the public to explore, engage and have conversations with museum staff’, the new Ideas Hub will house a series of objects representing all areas of the Museum’s collections.
Once visitors have interacted with these exhibits, they will be encouraged to proffer feedback on their preferred ways of learning about such items’ stories – both in terms of medium and tone.
“Ideas Hub will see us using our temporary gallery in a very different way to usual, alongside objects we’ll have staff from teams across the museum on gallery throughout the week, a collaboratively programmed workshops space and more opportunities than ever to feedback and start a conversation with the museum,” explained Alice Parsons, the Museum’s interpretation manager.
“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to hear from and talk with our visitors about our collections, our exhibitions and our place in the city of Bradford. I hope people will join us in this exciting process and have their say,” she added.
The Hub will be open between 26th March and 10th June and is designed to shape the institution’s programming and interpretation in the coming months and years.
