Annual review 2018-19
Find out more about RAMM’s work by downloading its Annual Review [PDF].
2018 was a busy year of 150th anniversary celebrations for RAMM, culminating with the spectacular Carnival of the Animals. It was also a year of remembrance, as we commemorated the end of the First World War with two poignant exhibitions: Canadians in Devon and Devon Voices.
Other highlights included the Criminal Ornamentation exhibition, which brought together over 100 high-quality contemporary artworks by 50 artists, and our first ever RAMM Lates held in February 2019. This was an after-hours event combining arts, music and fun activities with food and drink in a stimulating museum environment.
Talks, tours and workshops delivered in the museum provided something for all ages. Events such as our RAMMbingo project saw us working with local disability organisations to produce a resource to help people explore the museum.
Our digital work, including our collections aggregator, South West Collections Explorer, and the launch of our digital membership scheme have helped us reach new audiences, inspire digital creativity and make the museum more accessible.
