Call for applications – de Appel Curatorial Programme 2014–2015, Amsterdam
Initiated 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 in the field, but continues to adjust its curriculum to new circumstances in the curatorial field.
The ten-month-long full-time Curatorial Programme is practice-based and structured along the principle 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, practice-related assignments 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.
The deadline for the Curatorial Programme 2014-2015 is 13 January 2014.
