MEG-stand-image-webAbout MEG

Museum Ethnographers Group are a UK-based, but international collective, whose members include:

Museum professionals, academics, researchers & students
artists, activists & enthusiasts

Originally established in 1975, MEG has a long history of bringing individuals, institutions and museum collections together to build knowledge and understanding.

MEG believes that our museums have an important role to play in building understanding, foregrounding respect, and caring for each other. However, this is predicated on institutional and practical changes that we all have a responsibility to work towards. We cannot do this work alone and we hope that you will join us as we strive to support each other, share best practice, and collectively imagine a different future.

MEG is an active interface between museum professionals and university-based researchers and is recognised in the UK museums sector as a key subject-specialist network.

The Museum Ethnographers Group is registered as a charity in England and Wales with the Charity Commission (no. 1023150).
