Carrie Chan is a London-based independent curator, lecturer and researcher specialising in cross-media storytelling and digital arts practices. Being the Curator-in-Residence at FACT Liverpool 2022, she recently curated the show My Garden, My Sanctuary which looks at the remaking of coming-of-age stories through commodified Asian symbols. As a lecturer, she teaches at Ravensbourne University and University of the Arts London, with a focus on nurturing a transdisplinary arts approach to media content creation.

Prior to her independent curating practice, Carrie was the inaugural curator of Design Society - a major cultural institution in Shenzhen co-founded by China Merchants Shekou and London's V&A Museum.
She curated the opening exhibition Minding the Digital (2017) and co-curated Craft: The Reset (2018). She also led the department in exhibition curation, public art planning and project collaboration with global brands such as Swarovski, HTC, Lasvit and Philips. The opening exhibition was widely reported by international press such as Financial Times, The Art Newspaper, SCMP and Freize Magazine.  She also edited two publications during her tenure.

As the Design Trust/ Royal College of Art fellow in Design Curation (2018-9), she researched on the impact of the Internet landscape on fashion images and body representation. The practice was shared at RCA as well as Parsons School of Design through seminars and design workshops.

She is an advisory panel member and a judge for London's flagship contemporary craft fair Collect 2022. Previously, she was selected by the Institut Francais as one of the Chinese curators to participate in cultural exchange with French museums. In 2018, she was a nominator for London Design Museum's Beazley Design of the Year Award and the awardee of the Design Trust / Royal College of Art Fellowship in Design Curation.
