How was Rochdale’s collection founded? How have objects historically entered the collection? And how are we changing this process to be more democratic and co-operative with communities?

Discover the fascinating process behind how we decide what enters the collection and how we are re-distributing power to local residents to ensure our collections are more representative of Rochdale.

Hosted by Touchstones’ Bryan Beresford, Richard Philbin and Katie Roberts.
