SPARK NT Curatorial Symposium
6 Jul, 2018 - 7 Jul, 2018
Ever wondered what a curator actually does? Or how an exhibition comes together? Or perhaps you have an inkling that curating is something you would like to try?
This two-day symposium gathers leading curators from around the country with artists and arts practitioners to consider the current state of curatorial practice in the NT. Unpacking the role of the curator, sharing professional experiences and exploring future pathways, this symposium creates an open opportunity for exchange and dialogue among arts peers.
From the very experienced, to the emerging artist – there’s something for everyone.
Places are limited so registration is advised.
The symposium and performance are free and lunch and dinner are provided.
A day of presentations and workshops for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and arts workers to learn about exhibition development and curating. Topics covered include – collections and keeping places, conservation and caring for objects, curating to tell a story and installation techniques and methods.
*Please note, attendance to day one of the Symposium is reserved for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and arts practitioners.
