Application deadline: 23 July, 5pm.
This is an open call for people looking to develop their practical curatorial skills via a year-long placement at Film and Video Umbrella (FVU). During this period you will work to develop and realise a curatorial project of your choosing in the field of artists’ moving image.
This opportunity is intended to enable people from low-income backgrounds to pursue curatorial careers in the arts.
You will be supported to develop, fundraise and realise your project by the FVU team, who will offer expertise and contacts in the specialist field of artists’ moving image. FVU will double funds that you secure for the project, up to a maximum of £15K. You will be provided with a £5,000 fee, and will be expected to be based in the FVU office for a minimum of one day per week over the course of a year.
FVU will arrange for you to have regular meetings throughout the year with an external mentor of your choosing. This opportunity is intended for people from low-income backgrounds and of any nationality, but you must have the legal right to live and work in the UK for the duration of the year-long placement.
