Emma Curd is an artist, action-researcher, facilitator and museum professional.
The People’s Glossary (TPG) is a participatory action-research project developed to equip
communities to make interventions in galleries; to question language, interpretation, authorship, and expertise, and create alternative ‘ways to know about art’. Facilitated at Tate Liverpool where different groups of users engaged in the project to create the website, Community Collective - a group of adults working with Tate Liverpool - were vital in creating a 'common language'.
The visual design of The People's Glossary was created by Thom Isom, who also facilitated user sessions with the Community Collective and staff at Tate Liverpool.
An outcome of the project is accessible online at www.thepeoplesglossary.co.uk
