Curating Safe Practices | Curatorial Intensive

Monday 02 Nov, 2020

NETS Victoria is delighted to collaborate once again with the Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) to present the 2020 Curatorial Intensive, continuing to reach curators across Victoria and beyond. Unlike previous iterations, the 2020 program adopts a new format comprising of a free series of one-hour webinars.

The program is multi-faceted and provides a platform for curators, artists and writers to share their experiences and knowledge with one another through a live Q+A forum.

Responding to the themes which have shaped 2020, the Curatorial Intensive will include sessions on: managing curatorial risk; First Nations cultural safety; online engagement; and best practice for working inclusively with artists with disability. In addition, a live curatorial one-on-one networking session will be held in break-out rooms where curators will be paired together for ten-minute conversations before being rotated.

If you’re a curator or arts worker at a public institution, ARI, community space, or working on independent projects, we encourage you to register.
