Revisiting Collections – Royal Cornwall Museum ‘Pitch To! Farming, family and tradition’

This Revisiting Collections case study from Collections Trust outlines the Pitch To! Farming, Family and Tradition project at The Royal Cornwall Museum. The exhibition was part of a Cornwall-wide programme of oral history recording, contemporary photography and exhibitions to illustrate farming life in Cornwall past and present.

The project aimed to promote an awareness of farming history and heritage among local communities, to encourage participation in the curatorial process and to capture specialist knowledge about an area of the Museums’ collection that had previously been under-used and poorly catalogued.
