A Museum In The Making

BBC Radio 3

Gus Casely-Hayford, director of the forthcoming V&E East in the Olympic Park , gives an account of his work to fashion a new kind of museum for East London.

We follow him taking precious artefacts into schools, meeting ambassadors for the new museum at Frieze, talking to curators from London and Sydney about inclusiveness and telling his own story while receiving an honorary doctorate from the University of East Anglia.
