Cultural Diversity: Developing Museum Audiences in Britain
Leicester University Press, Jan 1, 1997 - Multiculturalism - 230 pages
Britain is now a multi-cultural society, and museums and galleries are composed of objects which derive from many cultures. Nevertheless, until recently, museum and gallery audiences have been largely white and middle class. Today, many museums wish to broaden their visitor profile to include those to whom museums have not been hospitable in the past. Significant moves in this direction have been made already, although much remains to be achieved.
