Open Space

The Open Space provides a space for people to reflect on and reimagine ethnographic museum and collection work. We seek to present a diverse range of perspectives from critical reflections and experimental works to new theoretical framings and approaches to researching, curating and engaging the collections. As we provide a platform to various voices and ideas, the opinions expressed here do not necessarily reflect those of the NMVW.
