Curating Cambridge: our city, our stories, our stuff

Monday 20 October – Sunday 23 November 2014

Five weeks of exhibitions, events, workshops, performances, talks, trails and hand-on fun bringing together culture and creativity across the city


To curate is to select, to organise and to care for objects but what does it mean to you?

Displaying sea shells collected on holiday on a window sill? Developing a blockbuster art exhibition? Planting a riot of colourful flowers in the garden? Programming a season of theatre performances? Commissioning art for public spaces?
Join us on a journey of exploration into the culture, community, passion, diversity, vision and individuality that makes Cambridge what it is.

We are bringing together an exciting programme of events and activities and throughout the next few months we will keep you posted about what you've got to look forward to.

There are a number of projects that are currently in action as part of Curating Cambridge, including My Home is my Museum and the Art & Science of Curation. Find out more about how you can get involved.


Curating Cambridge: our city, our stories, our stuff is presented by the University of Cambridge Museums with the Festival of Ideas, cultural partners and community organisations.
