This work looks at the current situation in museums and galleries in the country in relation to cultural diversity. Just as Britain is a multicultural society, so museums and galleries are composed of objects that derive from many cultures. Nevertheless, until recently, museum and gallery audiences have been largely white and middle class. Today many museums wish to broaden their visitor profile to include those to whom in the past museums have been inhospitable. Significant moves in this direction have already been made, and good practice can be identified. However, much remains to be achieved. This book introduces the issues that need to be addressed in order to reorientate museum philosophies and policies, and through specific case studies gives examples of how a more inclusive audience can be developed.
