This event was realized in fulfillment of my MA Curating Art final degree project at Stockholm University, and as part of the series of events of the Swedish Curators' Association, of which I was on the board of during 2022-2023. Dedicated to professional curators, it was a full-day program of discussions and workshops on the working lives of curators from a labour and care ethics perspective. It took place at the independent art space, Slipvillan, in Stockholm, from morning until night on a late-Spring Saturday. The intention was to generate a safe space for curators to share their experiences, both inspiring and challenging, of their day-to-day jobs as curators, and encourage solidarity and ideas for new support structures. It also included a participatory performance called "LULL", with massage and live-piano in private individual sessions with guests.  

Communication Materials

The event was promoted via several communication channels, including via my personal and the partners' websites and social media pages. The schedule program and posts were designed by Thomas Bush. 


The event was documented by videographer, Erik He, and photographer, Alex Stavrev
