collections out into the open. Get involved in the
conversation about how to animate history in new and
inventive ways outside of traditional museum and gallery
settings. The discussion panel will include producer John
Whelan, of theatre groups "People's Company" and "Imagine
That", guests from Tate Britain and the National Gallery and
