With over 30 strong applications, we have finally selected the six Curatorial Interns who will be working on this exciting opportunity with our partner organisations around the region.
Each paid intern will spend time working with an established visual arts organisation in Kent, feed back and work with the current BA and MA Fine Art students at UCA Canterbury and develop their own curatorial projects with the support of the programme coordinator Toby Huddlestone and also the supporting organisation.
Through European Inter Reg funding opportunities to collaborate with partners in France will be developed throughout the programme.

CRATE is supporting six curatorial internships developed through support from University for the Creative Arts (UCA), Kent County Council (KCC), Art Council England (ACE) and project partners throughout Kent. Partners include DAD, Strange Cargo, Turner Contemporary, Whitstable Biennale, Trifarious Projects, Stour Valley Arts. The successful interns will be announced shortly.
This opportunity was open to graduates from the University for the Creative Arts wanting to gain valuable paid experience working in the contemporary visual arts with regional organisations in Kent, feeding back into UCA fine art provision at Canterbury and developing a curated outcome building on their experiences.
The programme will run to June 2013, with these three separate phases of activity:
>SUPPORT (Nov 12-Apr 13) - placement with organisation
>FEEDBACK (Feb - Apr 13) - graduate teaching and feedback at UCA
>INITIATE (May-Jun 13) - initiate curatorial project with support

Claire Scott and Hannah Weatherhead are the new CRATE / UCA curatorial interns. Working alongside the CRATE curator Toby Huddlestone, they are gaining hands on experience supporting invited artists and the implementation of the individual projects, participating in critical discussions, and helping to develop an audience for CRATE and increasing access to the activities it supports. In addition Claire and Hannah are each developing their own curated project for the project spaces with support from CRATE and UCA. Further details to follow.
Using their experience at CRATE the interns will feed back into the BA & MA Fine Art course at UCA Canterbury through talks and workshops during the incoming academic year.
