Crate is offering an opportunity to develop an 18-month programme for its project spaces, starting early in 2013.
This opportunity is aimed at artists and curators who have previous experience of curating and coordinating projects and who are happy to self direct a programme and work independently. Crate is a small but ambitious organisation and the applicant needs to be aware of building and maintaining the infrastructure around the organisation - it is a mutually supportive opportunity - you support Crate and Crate supports you. There is administrative support available, and the recipient will also receive the assistance of a recently (UCA) graduated paid curatorial intern, but the entire running of the programme from conception to delivery needs to be self-initiated and delivered.
It is also encouraged that the recipient will help develop the organisation outside of the curated programme, by devising key initiatives with the Crate team to contribute to the organisation's sustainability into the future.
We will also accept proposals from collectives.
The successful applicant for the bursary will receive a £1000 fee to develop a programme proposal including funding applications, with Crate's support. The funding applications will include a negotiable curator’s fee as part of the proposed budget. If the funding bids succeed the curator will then deliver the programme.
