Call for applications – 21st course of de Appel Curatorial Programme, The Netherlands
nitiated in 1994, the Curatorial Programme of de Appel arts centre aims to offer young curators a condensed package of experiences and skills that can be seen as instruments to refine their thinking and enhance the development of their professional career. It is one of the oldest curatorial programmes, but continues to adjust its curriculum to new circumstances in the curatorial field.
The ten-month long full-time Curatorial Programme (running from September until June) is practice-based and structured along the principles of ‘learning by doing’ and ‘collective curating’. A select group of six participants, based in Amsterdam, partakes in a dense array of tutorials, workshops, excursions, a practice-related case-study and encounters with artists, art professionals and cultural producers. They finalise their stay in Amsterdam with a collective curatorial endeavor, realising an exhibition, festival, conference or book project.
Application deadline: January 12, 2015.
