Museums: Sharing the stories we are passionate about - Mummy Stories

How do we share stories from the museum, encourage wider discussion and build up our audience? Dr Angela Stienne shares the fascinating background to Mummy Stories, the first and largest participatory project of its kind.

Angela is a museum researcher and communicator, fascinated by finding ways to engage with museum collections through storytelling. She is also the founder of Mummy Stories, the first participatory project on human remains in museums. With 50 shared stories from around the world this a great example of easy and inclusive storytelling about museums.

Now, with over 2000 facebook followers and a following on Instagram and Youtube as well as its own website it is the largest community of individuals interested in the conversation surrounding human remains in museums. Mummy Stories was recognized by the University of Leicester through the Future Leader Award in March 2019, and has been featured internationally, including in France and Canada.
