Cultural festival celebrates Cambridge and its collections

The University of Cambridge Museums cultural festival - Curating Cambridge: our city, our stories, our stuff is now open until 23 November. This city wide celebration is an exciting mix of exhibitions, events, workshops, performances, talks, trails and hands on fun. To curate is to select, to organise and to care for objects but what does it mean to you? Displaying sea shells collected on holiday on a window sill? Developing a blockbuster art exhibition? Planting a riot of colourful flowers in the garden? Programming a season of theatre performances? Commissioning art for public spaces?

Join us on a journey of exploration into the culture, community, passion, diversity, vision and individuality that makes Cambridge what it is.
