CITIZEN CURATOR, CITY OF EDINBURGH MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES, U.K.
Diana Morton, Outreach and Access Manager for Edinburgh Museums and Galleries, outlines Citizen Curator, a two year outreach project, developed with arts and community organisations, to engage young people with the heritage of Leith (located to the north of Edinburgh, this was once a busy port and is now a regeneration area). The project culminated in an exhibition at the City Art Centre, where collections items chosen by the participants were displayed alongside their own work. Citizen Curator celebrated Leith's past and explored its vibrant and diverse present.

VALE CULTURA (CULTURAL COUPON), MINISTRY OF CULTURE, BRAZIL
Carlos Paiva, Secretary of Development and Promotion of Culture in The Brazilian Ministry of Culture, outlines the Vale Cultura. This is a ($15 a month) coupon for employees to use on ‘culture’ – from theaters, exhibitions and cinema to DVDs, dance lessons and books. The coupon is available to poorer workers and paid by companies that get tax breaks to participate. Cultural consumption is democratized and increased.
