Please give details of your interest in Visual Arts and Cultures

I have recently joined Durham University as curator, western art and have almost 9 years experience working in the museums and galleries sector. I am particularly interested in the modern day curator's role in how we work with collections, how we make them active and central to the user's experience. I believe that creativity should be embedded into education and everyday learning and that art should be seen as a tool for research, education and social change.
