What you’ll do

Museums are full of strange and wonderful objects, but who (if anyone) truly owns them? And how do we as visitors take ownership of the spaces in which they are displayed?

Join us for an evening of live poetry, performance from Pecs Collective, gallery tours and more – giving voice to the little-heard histories from our collections. This event is aimed primarily at an audience of 14 to 25-year-olds.

About your performers

RawMinds Ambassadors have collaborated with Poet in the City Producers to create a playfully disruptive event at the heart of Wellcome Collection – inviting you to question what museums are and to reimagine what they might be. 

Where we’ll be

You can find us in the Studio, the Forum and the Medicine Man gallery on level 1.
