Read comments supporting good curatorship from the 100’s of members of the public and museum professionals that have signed our petition on change.org. The petition is still open, so please sign it and show your support!
Read some of the comments we’ve received below:
“Good curatorship is the foundation of the excellent museum experiences that our users have come to expect. We need to protect the principle, and celebrate what good curators to do to help open up their institutions and their knowledge for society.”
“Without skilled specialist curators, knowledge is lost & collections die – simple as that. Without collections you cannot work in natural sciences.”
“Appropriate knowledge expertise is needed to care for our national collections, and facilitate their use. without curators we don’t have this.”
“The curator’s knowledge and understanding of the collections creates the value which can then be intereprted for the enjoyment and benefit of the museum visitors and the wider public. Without curators this link is lost and the perceived value of the collection goes with it.”
“We need good curators, because without them you can’t communicate a good ‘story’ to the general public and new specialists have no sound foundation of truth to build on.”
