As museums work to become more inclusive and relevant, how can we curate exhibitions that more people can see something of themselves in? Connection is key.
This study day, led by Lucy Malone, explores the questions: How do I make our collections relatable? How can museums spark empathy through the objects in their collection? How can museums revisit and reimagine collections? How can museums engage visitors on a deeper level?
All participants will take part in an workshop using their own everyday objects to explore layers of meaning and shared experience. They will also explore case studies of museums that have successfully curated exhibitions with emotional resonance that excite and engage audiences through their radical relatability.
Study Day: Curating with Feeling: Creating Relatable Exhibitions takes place on Tuesday 5 April 2022 at the Museum of London
Workshop leader: Workshop Leader Lucy Malone is Co-Founder of The Museum of Ordinary People, an award-winning curator and artist, and an Associate Lecturer at University of the Arts London.

Lucy has a degree in Psychosocial Studies from Birkbeck College and an MA in Culture, Criticism and Curation from Central Saint Martins.
