We have been awarded a Recognition Fund grant by the Scottish Government! The project will focus on the ethnographic collections from the Pacific Ocean. We will improve the collections documentation and storage. We also hope to take images of as many objects as possible to share on our online image database.
It follows the Pacific Collections Review funded by the Museums Association Esmee Fairbairn Trust, and our collaboration with the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Fijian Arts Project.
We can’t wait to get started and will keep you informed throughout. Here are just a few of the amazing objects from the Pacific in the University’s museum collections
