#ArtSciCuration at the Museums Association Conference

Is the role of a science curator the same as an art curator or a social history curator? Whatever curators do or don’t do, the notion of ‘curation’ is central to our sector.

As part of the Museums Association Conference 2014, this session explored the rich and varied meanings of ‘curation’. To a packed room of delgates, curators from different disciplines briefly outlined their own approaches to curation, followed by discussion.
