How did we get here?

Join us for an in-depth discussion with the team who are bringing more than 200 of the British Museum’s treasured objects to Canberra for the exhibition, Rome: City and Empire. What are the challenges involved in touring the British Museum’s collection around the world? How do you pack and move priceless objects? Are there standard practises? This behind-the-scenes conversation, facilitated by curator Dr Lily Withycombe, will explore the logistics of bringing an international show to Australia.
