Welcome back to the ‘Museum Engagement’ series featuring Rucha Vibhute, Senior Archivist from the Collections Department at MAP! Join us for a deep dive into museum collections and the intriguing journey objects take when they become part of a museum’s archive.

In this session, Rucha will discuss collections management, including acquisition processes, and documentation, offering insights into bringing objects into a museum’s collection.

Following the discussion, participate in a hands-on activity. Bring a precious object you consider valuable. Exchange objects with other participants and fill out an object acquisition worksheet, reflecting on your chosen artefact’s significance and potential impact.

As the session concludes, Rucha and the participants will share their experiences and learnings, fostering meaningful dialogue.

Don’t miss this chance to unravel the mysteries of museum collections and explore the power of objects to inspire and connect us. Reserve your spot today and join us on this enriching journey!
