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.
The eight museum partners are:
Gallery of Modern Art Glasgow
Katie Bruce, Producer/ Curator
Glasgow Women’s Library
Adele Patrick, Lifelong Learning and Creative Development Manager
Hunterian Art Gallery
Dominic Paterson, Lecturer in History of Art, Curator of Contemporary Art
Anna Robertson, Fine and Applied Art Team Leader
Paisley Museum and Art Galleries
Andrea Kusel, Curator of Art
Pier Arts Centre
Neil Firth, Director
Scottish Maritime Museum
Fiona Carmichael, Curator of Art
University of Edinburgh
Neil Lebeter, Art Collections Curator/ Deputy Head of Museums
Curatorial Leadership in Collections is delivered by SCAN, with Kirstie Skinner Director of Outset Scotland as lead consultant, and Rachael Browning Senior Programmes Manager at Art Fund as adviser.
Curatorial Leadership in Collections is made possible through the generous support of Creative Scotland, Art Fund, Outset Scotland and Museums Galleries Scotland.
