Museum Remix is back! This two-day workshop gives you the opportunity to create provocative and creative responses to our objects, exploring the theme of Power and Memory.

Your challenge

This year, we're creating audio. How can we retell the stories of our objects in creative new ways through sound?

Working with a team, you'll investigate the collections and create new interpretation, which we'll make accessible to our audiences via digital gallery labels and online.

Do you want to talk about and see change, bring fresh perspectives, or create a call to action on the theme of power?
Well, so do we. This is the space for you!

Discover complex, intriguing and challenging stories about power within our collections on a series of new walks.

Join an exciting opportunity to share and exchange stories and ideas on objects linked to our current investigation of the legacies of empire and enslavement. Join the conversation.

Join us in the galleries for an informal exhibition tour of Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso with Curator Guy Haywood and artist Errol Lloyd.

The tour will include a conversation with the artist that will explore his involvement in the Caribbean Artists Movement.

Kettle’s Yard is pleased to present Paint Like the Swallow Sings Calypso, a major new exhibition curated in dialogue with artists Paul Dash (b. 1946, Barbados), Errol Lloyd (b. 1943, Jamaica) and John Lyons (b. 1933, Trinidad), three important first-generation diaspora Caribbean painters that were working in the UK during the same period that the Kettle’s Yard House and collection was still being established.

Join us for the Polar Museum's part of the Native Spirit Film Festival, the UK's first and only annual independent festival promoting Native Filmmakers, Media, Artists, Indigenous languages and narrative sovereignty. To celebrate International Inuit Day, we will be screening four films at the Polar Museum. This event is part of the Power and Memory programme taking part across the University of Cambridge Museums throughout 2022-24.

Why do globes have North at the top? What decisions do map-makers have to make and how does that affect how we see the world? Who gets to name things on maps? How do we find out about different places and people around the world? Find out more about the power of maps in the history of scientific exploration and create your own map.
