Collecting for 2013 – an introduction

In 2013 the Underground will be 150 years old. London Transport Museum is busily preparing a year long programme of events, exhibitions and heritage train runs to celebrate the anniversary. We are also embarking on a new programme of work which involves collecting contemporary material, allowing us to bring our collection up to date.

Over the next few months, I will be undertaking a number of projects with Transport for London staff and members of the public. Whenever an interesting new object or story is collected, I will be sure to blog about it here. From oral history and digital stories, to contemporary art and participatory events, it’s going to be a great year for contemporary collecting!

And I welcome any suggestions you may have about what we should be collecting that represents the Underground today!
