An exhibition of paintings by members of Headway Derby, an organisation which supports people with brain injuries, their families and carers.
We’d like you to invite you to explore Joseph Wright, in anticipation of the opening of our exhibition, Joseph Wright and the Lure of Italy in March. What does Joseph Wright mean to you?
Join us for this drop in demonstration of how 3D scanning processes allow Derby Museums to digitise the collection and provide new ways to explore our fascinating objects.
We are delighted to invite guest speakers from around the country for an evening discussion about the evolving role of museums today. Hear about the future of collecting, the evolving use of digital practice, sustainability and the economy and public engagement.
