Megan Jayne Ryder speaks to pupils about her life as a curator

26 January 2021

On Monday evening, Norwich School hosted a virtual talk from Megan Jayne Ryder MA, Volunteers Co-ordinator at the British Museum, about her life as a curator and her work in art education, followed by a Q&A session.

Megan spoke to our current and prospective Art History pupils about her personal experiences of studying Art History, volunteering and the work experience she has had leading up to her current role as Volunteers Co-ordinator at the British Museum. She gave insight into her own careers pathway: from BA in Art History to MA in Curation and her various internships and volunteer roles to her work in museums and galleries now.

Mrs Williams-Goff, Head of Art History, said,  “It was enlightening to hear about how Art History informs the work she does now and the journey she has been on from taking Art History at A Level to her career with the British Museum today.”

This is Megan’s second event with Norwich School, she also gave a lecture to the Art History society in 2017 on ‘The Role of the Curator: A Critical Assessment of All the World's Futures'.
