Grand Union’s Curatorial Curriculum is an alternative learning programme for emerging curators, consisting of intensive workshops led by internationally-renowned practitioners. The workshops are held over four weekends annually, exploring different forms of curatorial practice.

The course is aimed at curators at the beginning of their careers, to offer an alternative programme to costly postgraduate study in a slightly less formal environment.

The sessions will be as follows:

25–27 May: Curating in Birmingham led by Birmingham-based curators, organisations and artists

August: Curating in Conversation led by Sophia Yadong Hao

September: Curating in Learning led by Janna Graham

October: Curating in Publics led by Annie Fletcher

We are looking for individuals with a working knowledge of contemporary art and some curatorial experience to take part. The course costs £275, with lunches included, and participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.

To apply, please download information here.

Application deadline: 8 April

We are delighted to be offering 4 bursary places through Engine for West Midlands curators to attend Curatorial Curriculum. 

Beatfreeks and ASTONish are additionally supporting bursary places.
