Search is on for new generation of star curators!

The Art Fund has launched the New Collecting Awards, a new funding programme that will enable the next generation of curators to apply for up to £300,000 of acquisition funding.

The scheme will enable ambitious curators to pursue new avenues of collecting for their museums, and at the same time build critical professional skills. As well as special acquisition grants, recipients will also receive money dedicated to their own professional development – to spend on research, travel and training, and the support of a mentor.
 

The first deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is 7 November 2014. Selected curators will then be invited to make a formal application.
