Over the last two years, the Labelling Matters project at the Pitt Rivers Museum has begun to tackle the problematic language of our labels.

However, what if one of the primary issues stems from the very process of how we perceive, create and display labels in the Museum?

Pitt Rivers staff members from different departments use labels to have a frank conversation about the practicalities, challenges and triumphs of implementing the decolonial methodology utilised by the Labelling Matters project into their various museum roles.
