Glanmore National Historic Site is gearing up for a busy day on social media. Ask a Curator Day, on September 18, 2013, is a way for the public to talk to curators and professionals in cultural venues to which they normally don’t have access. It’s open to everyone – museums, galleries, historic or cultural buildings, theatres – and participants can ask them anything they’re curious about or want more information on.
Ever wondered what the oldest object in a collection is? Or whether a particular painting or exhibit has a hidden meaning? Or how a Curator decides what to accept into a museum collection? Ask a Curator Day can help you find the answers while engaging with Curators from more than 500 museums in 34 countries through social media.
Questions to Glanmore staff can be tweeted to @GlanmoreNHS with the hashtag #Askacurator. Be sure to follow along on Twitter as international museum professionals answer questions from the general public throughout the day.
