Do you want to advance your knowledge of contemporary curating and pursue a professional career in the field of curatorial practice?
The term 'curating' is used to refer to a wide range of activities including organising art exhibitions, festivals and professional events, staging of lecture series, public conversations, reading groups, and even the management of our lives on social media.
