Marsh Awards for Excellence in Gallery Education – Nominations now Open

Do you know someone doing excellent work in gallery education and learning?

Engage and the Marsh Christian Trust are delighted to announce the Marsh Awards for Excellence in Gallery Education 2013, which celebrate the achievements of those working in learning and education within gallery or visual arts contexts. Four awards of £500 each will be offered to the winning individuals, to be spent on their Continuing Professional Development.

Nominees can

  • Be working freelance, in a salaried position or as a volunteer
  • Be at any stage of their career
  • Have exceeded the expectations of their role by showing dedication or innovation in their work
  • Be working in learning in or for a visual arts organisation or gallery of any size or scale, anywhere in the UK

The awards are principally for colleagues working in galleries (freelance, salaried or as volunteer), although those working with other visual arts organisations may also be nominated.

If you made a nomination in the past but were unsuccessful please feel free to do so again.

Nominations for non-members of engage are also invited.

Nominations should be made by a colleague or a representative from an organisation who has worked with the nominee.

For full details, including a nomination form, visit the engage website and download the Marsh Awards Call for Nominations document at the Engage website.

The deadline for nominations is 10 am on Monday 23 September 2013.
