Independent Curating // Concepts, Challenges and Collabs is a one day symposium which focuses entirely on independent curating, providing access for curatorial students or emerging curators seeking real-life advice from local independent curators to answer any practical questions around entry level opportunities and freelance curatorial project management.
While having a degree in curating is definitely beneficial in terms of accessing art theory and curatorial methodologies, it isn’t until you have to commit to curating an exhibition or project for the first time, that the real learning begins. Through shared experiences from a variety of independent curators based in both Sydney and Melbourne, this program will provide critical and candid insight into the array of concepts, challenges, and collaborations one can expect from pursuing a career in independent curating.
