About Me

An award-winning curator, author and public speaker with ten years of experience reshaping the museum world.

​I create physical and digital spaces to share and challenge narratives around material culture, bodies, ethics and inclusion.


I have spent the best of the past decade researching ways to engage the public with the ethics of bodies in museums. I believe that emotional conversations, honest and challenging narratives, and engaging storytelling should be at the heart of public engagement in the creative sector..​

I am the founder of three internationally-acclaimed projects:
• Mummy Stories, the first participatory project on the ethics of human remains in museums;
• The Lyme Museum, an online museum making invisible illnesses and disabilities visible;
• Museum Takeover, an award-winning relabeling of museum collections by refugees and asylum-seekers.

Dr. Angela Stienne is an amazingly innovative, ethical, and intelligent museum professional. She has made great strides towards creating a more inclusive museum environment and ensuring that every voice is heard. I've worked with Dr. Stienne on numerous occasions and her passion has always inspired me. She's not afraid to take risks and she's not afraid to speak out if she sees any ethical concerns. The relabeling project she worked on in Leicester with refugees is one of the most impressive, inclusive, and engaging programs I have ever heard of. I highly recommend Dr. Stienne for any project involving exhibition design, curation, program development, community outreach, or communications.
