Summer 2021

Gloucestershire Heritage Hub

Museum of Gloucester

CommUNITY exhibition at the museum...

See and hear the people of Gloucester

Co-Curated by Rider Shafique [Exhibition in Community Gallery]

“Community to me means to have a common unity, a common goal and objective. I want to create or rekindle this unity that I personally feel Gloucester at times lacks especially in the sense of feeling represented or reflected in some of Gloucester's long-standing attractions or institutions. I am interested in working alongside the Museum of Gloucester in starting to reflect a wider, more diverse and a more accurate face of Gloucester."

“Who is the Museum for? It’s for the community isn’t it? So why shouldn’t they be represented in a place that is for them?” Rider Shafique

Museum of Me

Fact or fiction? Pioneer or Prevaricator? How do museums tell stories with objects? How do we know that these stories are true? Could objects and artefacts be interpreted differently or used to tell a different story? Are these spaces inherently biased? Who decides what stories are told in the Museum of Gloucester? Workshops and spaces for you to share your stories will be held during the History Festival. Using current displays for provocation, your objects can be exhibited or photographed for the Museum of Me. For dates and more info visit:

Sat 4 - 19 September.
