12:00 – 12:30 Share Session

12:30 – 13:20 Lunch Break

13:20 – 14:00 Webinar Session: Case Studies + Questions

Case study 1: Exploring the curiosity of a city: a case study about collaborative exhibition creation – 

Carmela Pietrangelo, Content Developer at We The Curious in Bristol will share a case study about Project What If, the first major science centre exhibition in the UK about the curiosity of a city. Over the past three years, over 10,000 questions asked by people in every postcode in Bristol have been used to shape an exhibition that delves into the creative, collaborative and inspiring world of science. With the help of community partners, staff and volunteers, the questions were whittled down to just seven, covering themes such as happiness, the universe, invisibility, illness and time. Each question will be explored through a ‘constellation’ in the Project What If exhibition space when it opens this autumn.


Case Study 2:  Making touring exhibitions Covid safe – 

How can we make exhibitions Covid safe for different audiences as they travel? Alice Lobb, Exhibitions Manager at Barbican Art Gallery will explain the alterations made to the Barbican’s exhibition Michael Clark: Cosmic Dancer and how they are having to plan and adapt to changing circumstances. Michael Clark: Cosmic Dancer is at Barbican Art Gallery from 7 October and will tour to V&A Dundee in 2021.


14:00 – 14:40 Webinar Session: In Conversation + Questions

Speaker 1: Emma Thorne-Christy, LA-based exhibition designer and activist artist who works with museums, libraries and cultural centers to design imaginative learning environments that challenge and inspire visitors. Her work focuses on telling stories in three dimensional spaces beyond the book on the wall.




Speaker 2: Pip Diment, Acting Head of Exhibitions at Amgueddfa Cymru|National Museum Wales
