Today, everyone is curating something. From our social media feeds to the interiors of our bedrooms -- we are all subconscious curators. But what happens when you are made responsible for curating an exhibition? And what goes on within a curatorial team?

In January 2016, twenty Museum Studies MA students combined their collective museum experience to create an exhibition which would explore the mysteries of the mind. They dealt with all different aspects of making an exhibition: researching content, sourcing objects, designing publicity, as well as managing the group which made this all happen!

In this presentation, Project Manager Judith Kadee and Content Manager Lauren Chalk will take you through their journey from the very first concept, to the exhibition hosted at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology.
