We’re looking for #citizencurators. Are you one of them?
#Citizencurators is about recording history as it happens. The great moments of the Games will be written about and photographed, while the opinions of the commentators, organisers and celebrities will be in the media.
But what about the experience of residents in London? When the histories of 2012 are written, what will they say about what it was like to live in London?
#Citizencurators is a research project developed by the University of Westminster for the Museum of London that explores what it is like to live in London during the Olympic fortnight (July 27 – August 12).
We are looking for 12 #citizencurators to take part in documenting conversations and live experiences during the Olympic fortnight, using Twitter and Instagram. You must be over 18 and in London during the Olympic fortnight.
Would you like to be a Citizen Curator? The call for submissions opens at 12pm on July 6 and will run until 12pm July 13. The entry process is simple – tweet your response to the following question using the hashtag #citizencurators:
What makes your perspective unique as a curator?
We will announce our final 12 #citizencurators on July 20. The project runs from July 27 – August 12.
