Our Green Stories Tours with Alex Arnall
Curator-led tours of The MERL Galleries
Curator of MERL Collections, Dr Ollie Douglas, will be joined by a different specialist for each of these tours. Together they will take visitors on a short conversational trip through the galleries, exploring our collections, and sharing Green Stories about environment, climate action, social justice, and the life and future of the planet.
Each tour will last about 45 minutes and will culminate in a pop-up display or an opportunity to peek behind the scenes. At the end of the session there’ll be a chance to ask questions and to chat with Ollie and his guest.
On Tuesday 7 February Ollie will be joined by Alex Arnall, environmental geographer and Global Development Research Lead, for a discussion of land, food security, and how our ideas of the rural idyll are shaped.
These events are convened as part of the Our Green Stories environmental campaign by Museums Partnership Reading.
