In January 2016 I started on the Art As Advocacy project at the Bluecoat in Liverpool. I learnt what a Curator does, and I will be a curating my own exhibition at the Bluecoat at the end of the year. This project is also research and will be exploring if being curator is a good way to speak up.
In art, the title curator is given to a person who chooses and explains works of art. As well as selecting works, the curator often is responsible for thinking of exhibition theme, writing labels and other supporting content like tours for the exhibition.
