Visitors in 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 21st March Ollie will be joined by Mike Goodman, human geographer and Professor of Environment and Development, for an examination of foodscapes, the politics of consumption, and food systems past, present, and future.

These events are convened as part of the Our Green Stories environmental campaign by Museums Partnership Reading.
