Phase 2: exhibitions
The examination and analysis of exhibitions of our partner museums, and the range of museum displays and art installations around the country, provide a means of assessing the regional and national commemorative responses. The representation of the bicentenary of the abolition act of 1807 in museums, galleries, public spaces and architecture is diverse. These specific outputs are important as they both reflect and influence the wider public perception of the past. Comprehending the processes which shaped these activities, as well as the actual content of these exhibitions and events, enables an assessment of the ways in which 1807 is remembered.
