Curators, Collectors, Sharers and Exchangers

Listened to a podcast the other day that discussed the Parthenon Marbles. The commentator described a desire for the UK government:

Instead of just curators and collectors we must be seen to be sharers and exchangers.

While we community professionals are well-positioned to be curators and collectors — and we inspire community members to develop such skills — I think it’s the sharing and exchanging that really matters.
