Welcome to the Museum Ethnographers Group website, the place for resources, support and networking opportunities relating to museum ethnography in the UK.

Join us to become involved in discussions relating to global collections whether you are working in museums, seeking access to collections, teaching, researching, studying, or just interested.

Central to our work at this time is creating a supportive environment to acknowledge our responsibility to work through the embedded colonial presence in our museums. We seek to address barriers to accessing collections. We aim to help our members focus on tangible action and rethink practice to collectively imagine, and work towards, a different future for our museums and their collections.

MEG is active across the web - please visit our blog and repatriation resource. You can also find us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, . Better still, join our community by becoming a member.
