Join me, Jane Raffan, for a program that looks at 50 wonderful objects and their intriguing stories.
I’ll be chatting with Michael Turner, Senior Curator of the Nicholson Museum, University of Sydney, about his latest exhibition, 50 Objects 50 Stories.
As the museum notes, 50 Objects 50 Stories is not about the most important, or the most beautiful things in the Nicholson Museum. It’s about objects with a story to tell. Beginning in 1860 with antiquities from the original donation of Sir Charles Nicholson, the exhibition journeys through to the present day.
Objects tell many stories, and tall tales too. We’ll be chatting about a few, and Michael will introduce you to a cast of characters, curators and collectors who have helped shape the museum and its collection, with a few surprises!

And the music? Lots of stories there too. More to come, stay tuned.
Glad to be back with you. As always, I look forward to your company, 10:30 to noon.
