Great museums need good curators. Good curators have expertise about their collections, their subject disciplines and their relevance to society. They use this knowledge to create rich, meaningful experiences for our audiences and users.
The public has a right to expect great museum experiences built on authoritative expertise, which encourage them to learn and share what they know.
We call on the international museum community to recognise the need for good curators, to invest in curatorial expertise and make a commitment to sustaining curatorship for the benefit of society.
