Curator / Consultant / Producer

Candlestar’s consultancy services aim to add value by enhancing the work of internal teams at times of high intensity or through the introduction of new professional activities.

We write strategies and oversee their delivery. We advise on the recruitment of staff and specialist suppliers including designers, printers and web developers.

For nearly twenty years, Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad have curated a series of outstanding, often ground-breaking, exhibitions. Starting at the London Institute Gallery, they have curated over 100 exhibitions in major museums and galleries throughout the world.

Candlestar’s award-winning writers and producers create outstanding publications, websites, films and DVDs for a wide range of clients in education and the arts.

We are as at home with a blank sheet of paper or a half-formed idea as we are with a detailed creative brief. Either way the result is creative work of the highest quality.
