Behind the Scenes at the Museum with Jo Quinton-Tulloch. 31st January 2017 at 18:00, Kenworthy Hall, St. Mary’s College. Durham
The National Media Museum is a relatively young museum – just over 30 years old. Its origin stems from the Science Museum, London, but it has grown over time by incorporating a number of other collections, originally developed by other bodies and individuals, at different times and for different purposes. This has resulted in a collection of some of the best, most significant and historically important visual material to be found anywhere in the world, spanning a range of cultural, scientific and aesthetic disciplines.
The talk will (briefly!) explore the museum’s core collections of Photography, Film and Television, then touch on some of the challenges faced by the Museum sector, using the recent experiences of the National Media Museum as a case study.
Jo Quinton-Tulloch is the Director of the National Media Museum in Bradford.
