We organise or co-organise a number of events every year. Upcoming events are always listed at www.geocurator.org/events/ and from there you will be able to book tickets. If you want to see events that we have run previously, you can head over to the Past Events section of our resources area. 

By keeping as much of the organisation in-house as possible, we are able to keep our prices affordable, and tickets often sell out quickly. At the event, you'll be able to network with colleagues from other institutions, as well as receive expert tuition. If you have an idea for an event, or would like to help us host one, then please contact our Programme Secretary by e-mail on This email address is being protected from spambots.
