Art Fund is partnering once again with Whitechapel Gallery to offer a series of professional development courses for curators and museum professionals this autumn.
This series is targeted at both early-career and more experienced curators, whether new to the topic or wishing to refresh and expand their existing knowledge. These hands-on courses will draw on the expertise of staff from across Whitechapel Gallery, as well as other industry leaders. Each course will focus on practical training and use current projects as case studies, allowing attendees to gain valuable guidance and insight from behind the scenes.
Taking place in October and November 2017, the courses will cover the following topics:
- How to curate talks and events
- How to write about art
- How to curate the moving image
- How to fundraise: individual giving
- How to handle and install art
- How to fundraise: writing grant applications
Places normally cost £195, but curators and museum professionals are invited to apply for one of 34 funded places offered by the Art Fund. More details and information on how to apply can be found on the Art Fund website
Deadline: midday on Friday 25 August 2017
