Young Curators Programme

In September 2013 we launched the Young Curators programme. Young people aged 14-19 were invited to go through a programme which included creating a students exhibition learning to organise, plan and market in structured way with a team of like minded people.

The programme includes gallery visits, talks from curators and marketing experts and offered a brilliant way to have an insight into gallery management and the arts as a potential career progression.

We are now taking applications for the next group of young curators with the deadline for applications on the 26th October. Please click the link below to find out more about the programme and how to apply.
