We are pleased to be partnering with the National Museums Scotland for RTD 2017 and we will be hosted in their historic building on Chambers Street Edinburgh. RTD 2017 offers a unique opportunity for conference exhibits to be juxtaposed with traditional curated NMS artefacts and collections, challenging contemporary and future notions of value and expertise.
The National Museum of Scotland holds a wealth of historical and also contemporary material, their website states:
“Our collections are a legacy which we look after on behalf of everyone in Scotland. Our wealth of objects represent everything from Scottish and classical archaeology to applied arts and design; from world cultures and social history to science, technology and the natural world.The National Museums Collection Centre, in Edinburgh, is home to millions of items not currently on display. It also houses state-of-the-art facilities for conservation, taxidermy and academic research.
Through our research, we aim to explain the significance of the millions of objects in our care to a wider audience. How we interpret our collections can increase public understanding of human history and the natural environment.”
