Making exhibitions is a way of expressing ideas and thoughts. It is a very concrete and real way of giving a voice to each person’s stories.

In the Curators’ Collective, we propose the collective creation of an exhibition with works from the Caixa Geral de Depósitos collection. It will be a collective negotiation of ideas, involving much dialogue about the best way to physically present the narratives and the common concerns of this group through the works of art that are chosen.

The activity is designed for people both with and without experience in the visual arts, but limited to the age group of 16 to 19. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the universe of curatorship and museum practices guided by a professional curator and various specialised guests.

For five months and under the guidance of a professional curator, participants will have the opportunity to enter the world of curatorship and visual arts, learn museum techniques and select works for an exhibition to open at Culturgest in May 2021.

The project was be presented in the online gathering on October 7th to all who wanted to be a part of this collective.
