Curatorial Leadership in Collections

Curatorial Leadership in Collections (CLiC) is a new project developed by SCAN and Outset Scotland which supports and develops curatorial ambition within Scotland’s collecting institutions. The project brings together curators and directors from eight collecting institutions across the Scottish sector including key independent, university, local authority and national collections.

CLiC aims to strengthen a curator’s leadership role in activating public collections for contemporary audiences, and in building imaginative public, commercial and philanthropic partnerships. Taking place over 18 months, the eight museum partners will engage in curatorial research visits, advocacy forums and workshops. They will be supported to work individually and collectively to advocate for enhanced investment and to promote fresh thinking around partnerships.
