#AskACurator 2014

Yesterday was #AskACurator day on Twitter, an annual event in which museums from all over the world take to Twitter to answer questions tweeted into them. Some of them are about collections, about their careers, or more philosophical. I’ve been really enjoying this year’s event because it seems to me to be evidence that “transparency” isn’t just a buzzword in this industry which, especially financially, struggles with ethical concerns. This event seems to be encouraging actual interaction between curators and the public (and future curators!) which is great news.

So, here are some of my favorite tweets:

AAC8 AAC9 AAC10 AAC11 aac12 aac13 aac14 aac15 aac16 AAC17 AAC18 aac19 AAC20 AAC21 AAC22 AAC23 AAc24 AAC25 AAC26 AAC27

I didn’t personally ask any questions, but I think I have a few that I’ll be asking next year.

What questions would you like to ask museum curators?
