The Community Curator: Bridging the Gap Between the Museum and the Public

408 views

Published on

The relatively new role of Community (or Community Engagement) Curator is still being defined as museums struggle to identify how best to incorporate diverse audiences into their exhibits and programming. This session presents multiple views of how Community Curators position themselves to act as a conduit between the public and museum, developing interpretative materials, bringing external views to the museums attention, or building partnerships between the museum and community groups. Presenters will examine how museums can best interpret curatorial expertise and make space for community voice.
