Talk Online | Curating Institutional Change: Care and Compassion

Online | Curating Institutional Change: Care and Compassion

Synopsis

How can we care for our community of artists, curators, administrators, cleaners and the CEO in the same way we attend the art works?

Curating Institutional Change

A series of three panel discussions with incredible speakers responding to provocations and with an open Q and A; discussing how the visual arts sector can become more inclusive and accessible for Disabled people. Care and Compassion - in cultural organisations We expect the arts to be a naturally understanding, empathic, touchy feely environment. The reality is often far from this for institutions and organisations with the increasing pressures of inflated expectations, shrinking finances and, quite frankly, juggling an unrealistic number of balls. Perhaps now more than ever we need to remember we are dealing with people. How do we slow things down a little and bring back the humanity? How can we care for our community of artists, curators, administrators, cleaners and the CEO in the same meticulous way we attend to the art works?

The programme will broaden the discourse around the lack of representation of disabled curators and progress the conversations about inclusion, access and diversity beyond the traditional tropes.

Other events in the series:

  • 16th June - Rocking the Boat - externally driven change
  • 30th June - InsideOut:OutsideIn - creating change from within. Plus the launch of the call out for the next round of Curatorial Commissions.

The Future Curators Programme supports Deaf and Disabled curators to develop their skills and expertise through residencies within arts organisations. Through the programme we aim to change the culture of the visual arts sector so it becomes more inclusive and accessible for Disabled people.
