Are you a Curator or Museum Professional looking for affordable CPD this summer?

The deadline is fast approaching to apply for a funded place at Whitechapel Gallery and the Arts Fund's professional development courses this summer....

Working in partnership with Whitechapel Gallery, the Art Fund is also inviting applications for funded places on a series of professional development courses for curators and museum professionals.

This series of one-day courses is targeted at both early-career and more experienced curators, whether new to the topic or wishing to refresh and expand their existing knowledge. The hands-on courses will draw on the expertise of staff from across Whitechapel Gallery, as well as other industry leaders. Each course will focus on practical training and use current projects as case studies, allowing attendees to gain valuable guidance and insight from behind the scenes.
Taking place in June and July, the courses will cover the following topics (five funded places are available on each):
How to publish exhibition catalogues
Writing for the exhibition
How to fundraise – developing and managing fundraising events
How to curate a schools and community programme
Art writing for artists and critics
Curating events and public programmes
How to curate a youth programme
How to curate an exhibition with emerging artists
How to create a communications campaign
How to curate an exhibition – curating collection and archive displays

Places normally cost £195, but curators and museum professionals are invited to apply for one of 50 funded places offered by the Art Fund.

More details and information on how to apply can be found on the Art Fund's website.
The deadline for applications is Friday 25 May.
