With Megan Christo, Collections & Public Engagement Officer for the Play! Project

Megan is the Collections & Public Engagement Officer working on the Play! Project, which explores objects relating to play in the museum's collection, including toys, games and musical instruments. This talk will focus on her research into the museum's collection of dolls and our partnerships with originating communities that are allowing us to uncover the stories behind these dolls and their makers. 

Part of our Research Spotlights Series.

On the last Monday of the month join Pitt Rivers Museum researchers in the galleries for interactive talks bringing cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary research to life. In 2023, connect with objects and images from the collections and get to know the work of visual and evolutionary anthropologists, curatorial activists, health-care researchers and many other specialists who are accessing the museum to take their research in new directions and to connect with new people.  

Where: Meet underneath the Star House Crest Pole (Haida Totem Pole) in the Museum’s Court for talks to start at 12.30.  

Who: All are welcome to attend, from families to museum aficionados!  

Accessibility: Talks will be wheelchair accessible, may involve material that can be handled and we can provide follow-up info over email for visitors.
