Dr Chipangura’s talk, 'Community Museums in Zimbabwe as an alternative form of representing Living Cultures',  will examine knowledge production in collection practices and exhibitions and the ways in which museum practice in Africa can be decolonised.

The series seeks to support different perspectives on museum practice, decolonisation and Indigenisation, and inform organisational development
