cheryl lawrie is setting up an online community to share learning about curating. the idea is this...
I think the group would do the following: -
commit to a ‘program’ of regular reading and reflection on books, articles, videos etc
be involved with intentional conversations exploring how transformation happens in public spaces, focussed around questions like this: what kind of events create spaces where transformation might happen ? what kind of transformation can ‘art’ effect? how does transformation happen?
share practical ideas and wisdom, building up a database of knowledge
The intention of the group would be to have fun, to network people with the intention of collaborations, shared imagination, action / reflection, and to create a bank of wisdom and resources
clayfire curator is another new online space focused on curation and worship - this time a US based one coming out of the evangelical lutheran church. i actually know very little about this one but thought it worth giving it a shout out... mark pierson, the godfather of curating in relation to worship (who has a book out the art of curating worship which i haven't got round to getting yet) is going to be blogging on that space for 12 weeks.
curating worship - seems like an idea whose time has come!
