As a queer activist and independent curator working with museums, I use my drag alter ego Eugène Delacroissant (director of all the museums, with 0% experience and 100% confidence) to educate about queerness and feminism in museums and heritage sites. How can we queer art history and heritage and challenge the patriarchy in the cultural sector? With Eugène, this includes mansplained facts, camp theatrics and lip-syncing to pop songs!
It's Welsh, it's queer, it's fuuuuuun and fancy free. We are launching LGBTQ Tours at Amgueddfa Cymru National Museum Wales!
Iceland's Crazy Museum Collectors I spent a year in Iceland visiting museums and interviewing staff for a podcast (museumsinstrangeplaces.com). Turns out, there's a lot of really odd individuals who have just let their collecting impulses run wild, resulting in some amazing (and absurd) little museums. This set will be a very funny look at a few of my favorite characters and museums I came across with a surprising amount of Iceland facts thrown in.
'In the footsteps of Nathaniel Bryceson' is a showcase of my year following the 1846 diary of my ancestor, visitng the places he wrote about, researching the people and experiences of a 19/20 year old in Victorian London, and comparing them to life in the capital today.
