Our 2019 conference took place on 28 and 29 November at Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery and was kindly hosted by Ruth Battersby Took from Norfolk Museum Services. The speakers addressed the theme ‘Redressing Diversity: Making hidden histories visible‘. The conference included tours of the costume and textile store, a focused session on objects with ‘hidden histories’ at the Norwich Castle Study Centre and a visit to the History of Norwich Textiles display at the Museum of Norwich.
