On Food and Health forms part of Museum Futures, a new collection of books which explore - in a concise, highly-readable format - contemporary, challenging issues facing museums.
Many museums and galleries include exhibitions on obesity and personal behaviour. Few examine the social forces and causes of the obesity epidemic.
In On Food and Health, highly-regarded institutions like the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History and the Hood Museum of Art share their experience and provide the insights and advice you need to: 1 Help your museum become a powerful place to impact attitudes, values and behaviour. 2 Research and understand your community’s “ideal museum experiences”. 3 Mount successful issue-based exhibits - even when your museum is highly object-based. 4 Help your museum to matter to your community.
