The Emerging Curators Group (ECG) is a supportive forum for the next generation of curators in the UK, enabling peers to come together and share experiences and thinking around curating British art.
British Art Network awards bursary funding to fifteen emerging curators each year. Now entering its sixth round, the Network is working to connect the group with expertise in the field of British art through a variety of events and resources. Bursary funding supports attendance at workshops, as well as self-facilitated research and engagement with the wider British Art Network programme.
The ECG involves:
- workshops (online and in-person) with the Group and invited guests (the British Art Network will cover the cost of your travel to in-person workshops)
- undertaking individual research with support from the British Art Network’s Convenor, with the option of publishing or circulating through BAN’s website and communications
- an £700 bursary to spend on research costs and other professional development goals, and an additional £500 research support honorarium
- the opportunity to apply to a further fund for collaboration with other ECG members if desired
More information on how to apply can be found on the British Art Network website.
