Curatorial Committee and Working Groups

Representing different aspects of the UK curatorial community, committee members advise the Association and lead on various projects and events on a volunteer basis. Members meet four times a year online, and in addition collaborate with non-committee members in Working Groups focused on specific initiatives.

We are deeply grateful to our volunteer advisers on the Committee and the Working Groups for their strategic insights, collegiality and enthusiasm.

If you are interested in joining the committee or a working group, or would like to propose a new initiative or event, please email We would be delighted to hear from you.
