Meet the talented curators taking part in COMPASS: Emerging Curators Programme
Curator Jemima Dansey-Wright
Jemima is a maker, artist, designer and curator who studied textiles at the Glasgow School of Art. Her curatorial practice developed out of a desire to find interesting locations and contexts to exhibit her own work and has resulted in a collaboration with the Library of Olfactive Material and the co-founding of ESTD, a weekly market stall run from The Barras in Glasgow’s East End.

Curator Murray Morrant
Murray is an architecture graduate, with a narrative curatorial practice that is anthropologically and hermeneutically grounded. Murray is fascinated by the idea of the environment being in constant flux and the translation of natural resources through the process of craft. The concept of material reuse through craft is a central theme throughout Murray’s curatorial approach.
