Jo Barlow

Jo has been involved in cultural heritage throughout her life. After gaining her BA in Fine Art, incorporating art history, she went on to work as an independent artist, developing her understanding of the museum sector by working in Visitor Services teams across multiple museum sites. She has also worked as a curatorial volunteer for Glenside Hospital Museum. Her interests cover a broad range of topics, so she enjoys creating thematic connections across multiple curatorial areas.

She believes that museums should involve and consider their local communities, and has a keen interest in collaborative work.
