Collaborative Research Group (CRG) is an alternative internship and education programme that sees a collaboration between University of the Creative Arts at Canterbury and CRATE. Inter-regionally funded it brings together a group of 6 arts practitioners who are interested in collaborative working and the pluralities of contemporary visual art practice (producing, curating, organising, writing, etc.). This programme is proposed to be both an alternative and complimentary to post-graduate and research-based education, and places itself directly in the art-world and academia.
CRG runs from September 2013 until April 2014

In collaboration with the University for the Creative Arts, CRATE placed six Curatorial Interns in arts organisations around the region.
/ Josie Bassett @ Whitstable Biennale, Whitstable
/ Aine Belton @ CRATE Studio and Project Space, Margate
/ Margherita Gregegna @ Turner Contemporary, Margate
/ Alex Parry @ Strange Cargo, Folkestone
/ Marta Patlewicz @ Stour Vallery Arts, Ashford
/ Miles Umney @ Dover Arts Development, Dover
Each intern spent time working with their particular organisation, then connected with the School of Fine Art at UCA Canterbury to feedback to students and support professional development, and then initiated their own curatorial projects with the support of the programme coordinator Toby Huddlestone and the supporting organisation.
Through European Inter Reg funding opportunities to collaborate with partners in France was developed throughout the programme.

Claire Scott and Hannah Weatherhead were CRATE / UCA curatorial interns during 20111/12. Working alongside the CRATE curator Toby Huddlestone, they gained hands on experience supporting invited artists and the implementation of individual projects, participated in critical discussions, and helped to develop an audience for CRATE and increase access to the activities it supports. In addition Claire and Hannah each developed their own curated project for the project spaces with support from CRATE and UCA.
Using their experience at CRATE the interns fed back into the School of Fine Art at UCA Canterbury through talks and workshops during the academic year.
