The ‘Who Cares?’ project is supported by the AHRC Care for the Future theme’s Early Career Research funding strand.
The project team are examining the less glamorous collections which are held in museum stores and exploring the emotional responses (or lack thereof) of different stakeholders. The project represents a collaboration between Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, the Science Museum, the Museum of English Rural Life, the University of Birmingham and the University of Reading.
This page and the accompanying blog will keep you up to date with developments in the project. We welcome input from those working on similar projects and blog posts from those who want to publicise their own work in this field.
Please use the hashtag #whocares to join in the conversation on social media.
