Community Curators

Our Community Curators work to draw people into all aspects of our work, particularly local communities that have, in the past, had little involvement with museums.

They are working alongside diverse local communities to create a vibrant programme of engagement, grounded in opportunities for co-creation that re-emphasises the relevance of our museums.

The Community Curators are collaborating with colleagues in the partner museums, as well as many other partner organisations and charities to develop networks, share ideas and experiences, build expertise and promote best practice in community engagement across the sector.

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
