What would you put in a Museum of Contemporary Farming?

At this event, we ask ‘What would you put in a Museum of Contemporary Farming?’ Invited guests will present ideas – however impossible, imaginary or boring – and it is up to you, the audience, to decide whether they should be included in the Museum.

The Museum of Contemporary Farming is part of a commission from the Museum of English Rural Life for the project Making, Using and Enjoying: The Museum of the Intangible. The project is funded by the Arts Council England (ACE) Designation Development Fund and the Wellcome Trust.

The Museum of Contemporary Farming is an impossible project. It is manifested by its curator Georgina Barney, invited guests and the public through conversations, ideas, and artwork developed by artist and farmer, Kate Genever, on the theme of improvisation.

This event is taking place as part of our monthly Extended Hours Night, when the galleries, shop, cafe and reading room are open until 9pm.
