Airing our rags in public: communicating controversial collections



Inspired by the recent launch of our ‘Rag Rag’ collection on Manchester Digital Collections, we will explore best practice for discussing and sharing our difficult or controversial collections through online exhibitions and social media. Content warnings apply for discussions of racism, sexism, ableism and abuse, as well as other potentially sensitive or offensive material contributed by attendees. Please think about some examples of controversial collections or stories you may have encountered and be ready to discuss them in our roundtable session.
