Making our Connections: Collaboration, Community and the Exhibition of the Written Word

Project Details

Key findings

The current literature, both theoretical and practical, on exhibitions of the written word, is not extensive; some challenges are shared with exhibitions of other media, but some are particular and distinctive to the written word; there are a range of different drivers with which curators are having to grapple, including an increasing desire to reach wider and newer publics, and to play a more developed social or community role; there is a felt need for academic and extra-academic partners in an exhibition to understand the different pressures and demands under which they are working.
