We The Curious is searching for a creative practitioners to help them in this groundbreaking re-development as part of the Make Space project. They are striving to diversify the voices and people who engage with cultural experiences and place them at the very heart of the exhibition designing process.

Like all the best questions, there are many answers and ways to explore them. From sculpture to film, games or artworks, the sky’s the limit!
