#ExpandingCulturesTogether

With Curationist.org, we are creating a radically collaborative online platform to enrich and champion global content curation, so people can learn, share, and better understand the world we share. Geographic diversity, anti-colonial anti-racist, feminist, and queer practices, are among those that guide how we build our teams, how we deliver content, and how we cultivate our community.

Since launching our proof of concept platform in the Spring of 2019, we have learned a lot.  Our next public release will set the project up for long term value creation with a custom database of cross institutional open access art and cultural heritage works. People will have the ability to advance search through millions of works and curate their own collections. Our launch is set for Summer 2022.
