What goes on behind the scenes at the Ipswich Museum?

Hear from a selection of people who work there to find out more about what they do and who they are. The Tea Talks are a series of public discussions between artist Robert Pacitti and different members of the Museum team, over afternoon tea.


In this conversation we will meet members of the senior management team from Ipswich Museum. We will ask them about the role museums play in our civic and educational life, what they think the museums of tomorrow might look like, and what’s at stake now when planning for the future.


The Tea Talks promise relaxed yet engaging afternoon activities. Members of the public are invited to hear structured discussions, before being invited to join in and ask questions. By exploring topics such as conservation, what drives Museum staff, their favourite Museum items, or the role of history in contemporary life, the Tea Talks will bring life at the Museum out into the community in new ways and encourage new conversations around the Ipswich collection.


These Tea Talks are for anyone with an interest in Ipswich, museums, people, heritage, research, or even just good tea and cake.
