Curating Safe Practices—
NETS Victoria was 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 adopted a new format comprising of a free series of one-hour webinars.
The program was multi-faceted and provided 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 included 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 was held in break-out rooms where curators were paired together for ten-minute conversations before being rotated.
