By offering an intensive twelve-month curatorial training and London living wage to 12 people from lower socio-economic backgrounds globally we will help diversify the curatorial profession. The programme is divided into five strands: academic seminars, skills training, network development, exhibition-making and coaching and mentorship.
We are looking for applicants from a wide range of backgrounds who can demonstrate a genuine interest in art and culture. Individuals with a BA (Hons) are welcome to apply. Applicants who already have a Master’s degree or equivalent in Art History or Curating are not eligible for this programme. The programme is only available to individuals from lower economic and working-class backgrounds.
All participants will be paid a Real Living Wage, with which you will be expected to pay all bills (including accommodation) once in the UK. This is an hourly rate of pay (currently £11.95/hour for London) set independently and calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK. Participants will receive a full-time employment contract for 12-months. For international participants, New Curators will cover the cost of a twelve-month Tier 5 visa and the UK Immigration Health Surcharge for the duration of the programme.
