“I was so pleased to find the team of Sharon and Peter who could deliver exactly what I wanted based on a very niche brief. Their help with events, film screenings and exhibitions as part of the wider Tour de France festival definitely helped us create something special that will live long in people’s memories.”
Ian Cleverly, Editor, Rouleur
At the top end, the calibre of artists drawn upon is eclectic, from award-winning masters of their craft who have reported from some of the world’s most difficult places, to others capturing the glamour of celebrity. At grassroots level, The Curators has a clear commitment to work in support of community initiatives and pro-bono projects, nurturing talent to support the arts as a career choice.
“Opera North enjoyed planning our Behind The Curtain exhibition with Sharon and the team and look forward to collaborating again in the future.”
Dominic Gray, Projects Director
The Curators’ extensive experience and cultural connections have brought together a portfolio of stunning collections from destinations across the globe with contributions from names such as Tom Stoddard, Laura Pannack, Jocelyn Bain-Hogg and Cornel Lucas, providing innovative and inspirational events.
“Following a successful pitch to be part of Yorkshire Festival, the first ever Cultural Festival in the 111-year history of the Tour de France, Sharon and Peter conceptualised a commercially astute cycling centrepiece for an evening that catered for those with a genuine passion in the sport, as well as those with a passing interest. They develop events people are happy to be seen at and conversation flows – they just have a great eye for what’s appropriate and deliver to a very high standard.”
Jenny Higgins, Senior Campaigns Executive, Welcome to Yorkshire

Helping the talent of the future
The Curators is an arts resource, project planning, curation and exhibitions network with a valuable cultural sensibility and commercial insight. We are driven by our core values of being socially responsible with a charitable ethos and a commitment to supporting those currently working in the arts and nurturing the talent of the future. We are proactive in raising money and awareness for charity and fair and transparent in all we do.
We have a strong commitment to emerging artists and supporting the development of film and photography, hosting dedicated events and helping to build networks and skills.
“We were delighted Sharon and Peter saw fit to offer such wholehearted support to our festival that uses art as a vehicle to explore some really complex mental health issues. We particularly appreciate that balancing community spirit and a commitment to issues that matter with a relentless programme of arts events is no easy task, but we were freely gifted space, ideas and time.”
