Ask A Curator Day, September 16

Join us over on Twitter Wednesday, September 16 for international Ask A Curator Day.

What is Ask a Curator?
It’s a way to talk to curators and people who work in cultural venues you normally don’t have access to. #Askacurator is open to everyone: Museums, galleries, National Trust, Theatres, and more. You can ask anything that you’re curious about or want more information on.

  • What’s it like to be a curator?
  • How do you decide what to display?
  • What is the most unique object in your collection?

As some curators won’t know *all* the answers straight away, it might be they have to get back to you if it is a specific question about the museum/gallery. However, if it is a general question, you might find another museum’s curator could answer it.
