The local museum has been offered an object. You, and the rest of the citizen acquisition panel, must decide whether to accept it - and how you’ll present it if you do. You’ll hear from cultural activists and museum professionals in Europe and Africa, discuss with your fellow participants, and ultimately decide what should happen.
Placing you at the heart of the experience, award-winning studio Fast Familiar present an interactive artwork which asks: how do we choose the stories we tell about the past?
The Acquisitions Panel received the Jury Special Mention in the Alternate Realities category at Sheffield DocFest 2022, and the Activist Museum Award.
