(Re)creating Culture

If societies are given the chance to curate culture themselves based on their experiences, narratives and memories, what would the picture look like? How different would it be from an ‘officially’ curated version? 

(Re)creating Culture explored the shifting role of the curator within a transnational context and in light of the demands of a globalised post-colonial world. 

With a particular focus on the Gulf region, which has recently witnessed a rapid expansion in its cultural and museum initiatives, the project focused on the challenges of curating in a transcultural milieu and on issues of audience engagement and inclusion. The project included an experiment which revealed how different people from societies in the Gulf region think and feel about the culture and the identity of their region.
