Rachel Morris: We are all museum-makers

From Saturday Morning, 8:10 am on 24 April 2021

Rachel Morris makes actual museums but she says that, in a way, we are all museum-makers as we try to make sense of the chaos of the past.

Unpacking boxes of old family stuff from under her bed inspired her to start writing her book The Museum Makers.
"Woven through the book is a family story of love, loss, incest and the Victorian cult of free love, not to mention my aunt's story, she being the New Zealand-bred novelist Fay Weldon."

Rachel Morris is a founding director of the museum-making company, Metaphor,  and runs a popular website called The Museum of Marco Polo.
