TheNews Curatorial Roundtable I – Best Practices

SOMArts The News – Queer Curators Roundtable is a rare opportunity for Bay Area curators of queer performance to convene in an open conversation to discuss best practices in queer performance curation.

Organized by Komel WithLove and Fallon Young, and moderated by Kolmel, The News invites a number of curatorial voices from local arts organizations as well as independent curators and cultural producers to discuss aspects of the curatorial process in order to share their challenges, innovative ideas and resources with one another, and ultimately come away with an evolving, shared document of best practices that will nurture a community of queer performing artists & performance curators.

Performing artists & curators, arts administrators and all interested parties are welcome to attend the discussion. Artists will be able to take away a sheet of contact information & resources assembled by participating curators, and everyone who leaves their email address will be sent a wrap up of the discussion and resulting best practices document by email.

Following is a capture of what knowledge was shared during this process.
