Client/Consultant Conversations

Live Webinar for Mentors

Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 2 - 3 pm ET



As curators, our responsibilities range far beyond our training and expertise, leading us to work with all players in the art field: conservators, registrars, education and or departments, fabricators of all sorts, customs agents, editors, photographers, graphic and exhibition designers, architects and the list goes on, and on. As most museums do not have such an array of professionals on staff, curators will turn to consultants/freelancers regularly in the course of doing their work. And many curators are working independently, largely after years spent working within museums. This webinar is being developed to address, from both sides, the issues that result in productive relationships and successful results when colleagues from within museums work with those outside the museum staff and structure.
