Description This article explains the results of the post-doctoral research “Accessible curatorship: exhibition and cultural action proposals centered on the relationship of different audiences with cultural heritage.” The investigation has theoretical and practical results collected through observation, and analyzes specific cases of accessible and participatory curatorship practices in museums and other cultural institutions. The research focused on curatorial practice where the target audience, through representatives, focus groups and collectives, participated in creating exhibition ideas, conducting exhibition research, and producing exhibitions, museums projects, and educational programs. The methodology combines a literature analysis in the areas of Museology Theory, Communication and Criticism, Curatorship, and Cultural Action, and empirical data collection via technical visits and interviews with people who participated as co-curators in Brazilian and international cultural institutions. The main objective of the research was to find answers to create a methodology to help institutions and professionals to produce accessible exhibitions with participatory curatorship, where the target audiences, representatives of specific audiences or actors of the heritage, can contribute their knowledge and experience to exhibition development.
