The British Museum’s National Programmes team, with the generous support of the Vivmar Foundation, are hosting a free one day conference on Monday 13 April 2015 at the British Museum to explore the Curator of the Future.
The Conference is open to anyone working in or with UK Museums at any career level and welcomes delegates and speakers from a wide range of roles and experiences, such as curatorial, learning, engagement, outreach, digital, and events.
By bringing together a range of speakers and opinions, the conference will aim to highlight best practice, encourage new ideas, showcase creative strategies and practices, and provide networking opportunities.
The conference will therefore ask: What is a Curator of the Future? What are examples of current curatorial activity and where is, and could, the role be heading in the future?
The conference will focus on three key themes:
The Curatorial Survival Kit: what should be in the ‘curatorial survival kit’ to survive and thrive in the changing professional landscape?
A Brave New World: what are the impacts and opportunities for curatorial practice?
The Next Generation: how can we help support the current and future curatorial work force?
A programme is currently being curated from proposals submitted from across the UK and will be circulated nearer to the event.
A limited number of travel bursaries will be made available.
