An exhibition of forty objects selected by the local community to tell the story of their city. To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the Museum of Oxford has been working with local people and community groups to bring together objects which reflect their experiences and memories of Oxford over the past four decades. Visitors will be able to explore Oxford’s recent history through everyday objects, historic artefacts and personal mementoes. 40 Years, 40 Objects will also feature an exciting spotlight loan from a national museum and artwork and digital stories created especially for the exhibition.
Throughout the summer of 2015, we will be looking for objects to include in the exhibition through a busy programme of community workshops and outreach events. To get involved, come along to our community collecting day on 20 June in The Old Museum or catch the Museum outreach team at a range of city events including the Oxford Summer Mela on Saturday 13 June and Cowley Road Carnival on Sunday 5 July.
Collections of 40 things we love about Oxford. Expect poetry and photographs amongst other medium as part of our 40th anniversary celebrations. Supported by thebestofoxford
