Museum Freecycle UK

Museum Development North West

Museum Freecycle UK, was launched last week and aims to provide a platform for museums to offer each other showcases and other exhibition build items that would otherwise be discarded.

Caroline Keppel-Palmer, the managing director of Urban Salon, which founded Museum Freecycle UK, said: “As exhibition designers, we are only too aware of the waste that temporary exhibitions generate.

“Museum Freecycle UK provides a simple online tool to help us make exhibition build budgets go further, create more engaging experiences for museum visitors and reduce waste.

“Museum Freecycle UK is the first industry-wide and national Freecycle group created. We will learn as we go. We look forward to working with the museum sector to evolve the network and to continue to help museums reuse materials.”
