10am-1pm. Specially devised for museum professionals and creative practitioners, this brand new edition of the highly popular and thought-provoking Curating for 2012 will explore links between everyday objects and museum collections. From the start New Object Lessons has been fascinated by the close relationship between the local and global; through its Diversity Challenges and its curatorial conversations, it has invited participants to reconsider their views and understanding of Englishness and glocal identities; using a non racialised and non-stereotypical approach to developing sustainable cross cultural content. Curating for 2012 and Beyond will focus on themes relevant to both the Cultural Olympiad and the forthcoming centenary commemoration of WW1. The starting point of this exciting curatorial journey will be a watch, a pack of cornflakes and a bottle of coca cola. This programme will provide an ideal platform to reflect on the importance of shelf-learning at a professional level.
Curating for 2012 was created in 2008 by a local historian and museum consultant Dominique Tessier. If you're looking for more inspiration, join the New Object Lessons Facebook Group http://www.facebook.com/groups/112195728835018/
