GIVE A MUSEUM TOUR OR TALK
Holding our Faiths In Tune festivals at the British Museum and the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery is also an important opportunity to highlight the sacred context of many of the objects on display and encourage museum visitors to see the museum's collections "through faith glasses".
Next festivals & fairs:
British Museum (Great Court), 31 March 2019
Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery (Industrial Gallery), 6 April 2019
We are inviting representatives of different faith communities to contribute to the festival programmes by offering personal guided tours through thematically suited galleries or giving talks on items on display that are of relevance to their own faith, thereby offering a personal and new perspective, informing and educating about religious art and customs, and allowing for open, accessible conversations on the museum's collections and the sacred and cultural context of exhibited items.
To learn more about the museum's collections, please visit the following websites:
>> Galleries at the British Museum
>> "Faith in Birmingham" Gallery at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
Please let us know by 31 January 2019 if you would like to offer a talk or tour at one of our UK Festivals.
We look forward to hearing from you!
