The Role of Museums in Displaying Refugee Narratives is an online webinar discussing the role of museums in portraying and engaging with refugee histories in the UK. These two museums offer unique insights into how institutions can give visuality and voice to refugee communities, with a specific focus on the challenge of building new lives in new countries. This event also hopes to explore the new challenges museums face in communicating these narratives in such uncertain times. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A.
