Collaborations between academics and those working in contemporary arts fields are widely sought after by both sectors. The research community is increasingly interested in finding opportunities to connect with the contemporary arts landscape; in part due to ‘impact’ and public engagement agendas, as well as increased institutional support for knowledge exchange activities. In response to this crossover, The Culture Capital Exchange and the Institute of Contemporary Art hosted Meeting the Curators, a free event open to TCCE members and to curators or cultural sector professionals. The event presented a range of perspectives from curators working with academia in diverse contemporary arts contexts. There was also a short co-presented case-study from several of those involved in the Her Noise project and archive, which manifested in the Her Noise: Feminisms and the Sonic 3 day programme at Tate during May 2012. The presentations were followed by a gallery tour and networking drinks.
