Fancy Yourself as an Olympic Reporter? Apply to be a #CitizenCurator & Share your Experiences


University of Westminster and Museum of London are on the hunt for 12 #citizencurators to record life in London during the Games.

As everyone knows, the great moments of the Olympics will be photographed & written about, with opinions of organisors, commentators and celebrities in the media - but what about the experience of the humble London resident?

That's where the #citizencurators come in! #Citizencurators is a research project developed by the University of Westminster for the Museum of London that explores what it is like to live in London during the Olympic fortnight (July 27 – August 12).
