Share your passion
If you have an unusual or interesting collection and would be happy to share your passion, now is your chance. When the museum reopens in December 2011, there will be a gallery devoted to the people who donated their collections to RAMM. Called Finders Keepers, the gallery will also include a special display case devoted to local contemporary collections, like yours.
With six new displays each year, we hope to explore the range of interests and breadth of people’s collections. The only constraints are that the objects can’t be too big and the collector mustn’t be too shy. The collections will be displayed on 290mm shelves and the interpretation will not only include brief details of the objects and how the collection developed but also a little about the owner.
If you are local, you have an interesting collection and would consider displaying at RAMM then let us know. The easiest way is to press the Contact us, fill in your details, select Getting involved and answer the following questions:
- What do you collect?
- Which was the first item in your collection?
- What first attracted you?
- How many objects do you have in your collection?Which is your favourite object and why?
- What is your dream object for the collection?
- What would you like to happen to your collection when you die?
- Please tell us a little about yourself.
We have a passion for collections and look forward to hearing about yours.
