How do we tell the prescient stories of our time? This four-week course will unpack contexts in which contemporary curating has adapted, reacted, and evolved in recent times.

Through case studies and conversations, this course will explore the role museums and galleries play in dealing with the global issues affecting our day to day lives. How do we tell these stories in impactful and meaningful ways? How do we share different voices and perspectives?

Led by independent curator Matilda Pye, the course will bring together professional expertise from the V&A alongside contemporary practitioners, each week will focus on a dedicated topic: Pandemic, Sustainability and Environment, Communities and Social justice and Identities.
