Zandra Yeaman

Zandra is the Curator of Discomfort based at the Hunterian Museum. Curating Discomfort is looking at ways outside of traditional museum authority to explore the interpretation of contested collections and to design and deliver a series of museum interventions that takes the museum out of the institutional comfort zone. As an anti-racist activist, Zandra works with museums to gain an understanding of current social systems and how they are influenced by the legacy of empire, slavery and colonialism. Support them to explore a historical narrative that does not centre or privilege colonisers but re-frames the stories to acknowledge and be representative of our shared histories.
