Q: What makes a good curator?
J: Oh wow. Future curators will be reading this!
Number 1: Don’t be shy. People are shy to step forward. They tell me, “I don’t have anything to share. At this stage I don’t have anything that’s outstanding.” Things that you think are banal could be new to others.
Second: Be willing to share your personal experiences, what you do. (of course to a limit that it doesn’t divulge your company secrets) Be willing to engage, talk to people, take part in conversations with other curator accounts even.
Third: If you have an opinion on a controversial topic, substantiate it. If it makes sense, go for it. Trust yourself. Keep the conversation going.
