Tour of Suffolk museums

Following its success at Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich in 2021, the Power of Stories exhibition, which features three original costumes from Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, toured museums across Suffolk in 2022 and early 2023.

Supported by Suffolk County Council, each museum re-imagined Power of Stories to suit each venue space, culture and specialist theme. Museums worked with community curators, such as Africa historian Imani Sorhaindo, who helped produce the original exhibition.

Power of Stories was originally produced by Ipswich Museums, with support from Arts Council England, to echo Marvel Studios’ Black Panther’s inspirational call to millions of people around the world to think about where they came from and who they want to be.
