This panel considers how curators critically engage with the work of social justice by bringing together practitioners who work within the framework of full-time employment within an institution, and those who work independently. The goal is to consider how the resources, knowledges and experiences from curators with marked socio-cultural and socio-economic professional differences can be pooled together in order to learn from one another, but also to forge new pathways, partnerships and radical curatorial methodologies towards justice and equity.
