Regarding the question of whether you can curate a symposium, this is 
something I have encountered before and gradually changed my mind about.

When working on the 1998 symposium Curating Degree Zero, my colleague 
and good friend Dorothee Richter requested that we use the term 
'curated by' in the publicity for the symposium, up to that point I was 
describing us as co-organisers. I asked her Sarah's question and she 
replied interestingly that by suggesting that we were curating the 
symposium we identified ourselves as the selectors and implicated 
ourselves in an authorial (not purely organisational) way with the 
discourse produced. Equally as freelancers, the term allowed us to 
define ourselves as separate from the institutions supporting the 
project, as organisers we might simply be perceived as bureaucrats. 
This began a debate between the two of us about authorship, 
independence, responsibility and meaning, which is still going on, but 
for me at least curating symposium's is possible.

art media.... hmmm someone else will have to have a go at that, or 
maybe all will be explained at the symposium...

regards

Barnaby
