Ask A Curator Day

Ask a curator


Ask a Curator Day is a worldwide Twitter Q&A with a variety of participating museums and galleries, taking place on Wednesday 13 September 2017.

It’s a way for anyone to talk to curators and people who work in cultural venues that the public normally don’t have access to. 

#Askacurator is open to any museum or gallery to participate.

Participants are encouraged to ask anything that they are curious about or want more information on.

Curators will not know all the answers immediately; they may have to get back to you if it is a specific question about the museum or gallery.  However, if it is a general question, you might find another museum’s curator will answer it.

How to get involved?

Use the hashtag #AskaCurator on Twitter.  You can ask questions to specific museums using the @MUSEUMNAME or you can ask general questions using #AskaCurator.

You should notify your followers on social media the time your curator will be available.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
