EVENT | Prof Rosaleen Duffy speaks at LIVE LATE: Stories from the East.

Professor Rosaleen Duffy talks at Weston Park Museum on Fri 19th May, as part of an evening of events to mark the opening of Stories from the East: The Grice Ivories exhibition.

Professor Rosaleen Duffy talks about the complexities and ethics of the modern day ivory trade as part of Museums Sheffield LIVE LATE series on Friday 19th May, 19:30-22:30 at Weston Park Museum.

The event marks the opening of Stories from the East: The Grice Ivories exhibition at Weston Park Museum. Running from 11th May – 19th July, the exhibition represents the UK’s finest and largest display of ivory hand-carvings in over 15 years and will look at the tales, figures and traditions that inspired them. The exhibition will also explore how Dr John Grice’s extraordinary collection of ivories came to Sheffield in the 1930s, as well as the history and impact of the ivory trade.

Entry is free, with the event promising to be a night of activities, creation, debate and exploration of the legacy of Sheffield’s ivory collection. Rosaleen’s presentation takes place from 20:30-21:30. There is no need to book a place – you can show up on the night.
