Jerwood Arts are delighted to introduce their UK-wide call for entries for Jerwood Curatorial Accelerator (JCA).
JCA is a new 12-month programme to support ten early-career curators from working class/low socio-economic backgrounds to develop their networks, skills, and leadership ambitions. The programme is designed to support individuals who are in the early stages of their career, have curating at the heart of their practice, and are looking to take the next step in their career.
The programme is fully funded. It includes:
- A bursary of £4,000 to support your time spent on the programme which can be either paid directly to you, paid to your employer in order to backfill your role, or split flexibly to enable you to participate
- All costs for travel to and from, accommodation, local travel, meals and refreshments for visits to eight Host organisations including any individual access requirements
- All costs associated with the online programme of workshops and talks
- An individual budget of £750 for mentoring
- An access budget supporting the needs of D/deaf, disabled or neurodivergent Fellows and/or those with caring responsibilities
To find out more about the programme, access the full guidance and the application form, please see our website: https://jerwoodarts.org/jerwood-curatorial-accelerator-guidance/
The deadline for applications is 5pm, Tue 3 May 2022.
If you are interested in applying, you can join us at an online event on 12 April 2022 at 12pm-1pm with special guests. We will discuss different curatorial careers and answer questions about the programme. Sign up here or watch the recording after the event.
JCA is designed and delivered by Jerwood Arts, with funding from Arts Council England’s Transforming Leadership Fund and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, and Art Fund support.
You have a track record of curatorial work in the visual arts and have been developing your practice for between 3-7 years outside of any educational training (if relevant).
You have worked on at least 3 projects where you have demonstrated your own curatorial voice and vision.
You have begun to build networks within the visual arts but are looking to expand these across the UK.
