Indigenous Researchers and Artists Programme Origins and Futures is a new programme that welcomes indigenous artists and researchers to study and reconnect with unique cultural objects cared for by the Pitt Rivers Museum. Please help us set up this programme so that traditional skills and art can be safeguarded for future generations.

The Pitt Rivers Museum holds one of the world’s finest collections of anthropology and archaeology
The Museum is known for its dense displays however, the majority of the collection is stored in off-site facilities. Over the next two years, the collections housed at the largest of these facilities will be moving closer to the Museum.
