New York with the Art Fund & AAMC Foundation Conference Travel Fellowship

Closing date: 12 February 2019, 12pm ET (5pm GMT)

Curators working with collections at UK non-profit organisations are eligible to apply for full funding through the Art Fund & AAMC Foundation Conference Travel Fellowship to travel to and attend the AAMC & AAMC Foundation annual conference in New York City (4-7 May 2019). Applications from curators without access travel funding and/or without professional development support are particularly encouraged.

This programme has been developed with an aim to enable UK curators to engage meaningfully and with authority on the international stage, developing their own experience and learning while also raising the profile of their institutions and collections abroad. Curators without existing strong ties to US partners and the overall international curatorial network are the ideal candidate(s) for this programme.

Funding will include attendance at the AAMC & AAMC Foundation annual conference, introductory weekend tours, a collegial partnership with a peer US-based curator throughout the conference, networking opportunities, a 2-year AAMC membership and the possibility to apply for a follow-up grant after the conference.

Further details are available on the Art Fund website.
