Call for applications – Tate Intensive: Making Tomorrow’s Art Museum, London, UK

Applications close at 12.00 noon UK time on 14 March 2016.

4–8 July 2016
This week-long programme held in the new Tate Modern offers an exceptional opportunity to explore key questions facing art galleries and museums in the twenty-first century. It provides unparalleled access to the thinking, planning and practicalities involved in running a major museum. Through a rich, varied and intensive programme of activities, discussions and visits, an intimate group of culture professionals from across the globe will come together to share knowledge and exchange ideas concerning current practices and emerging trends that are shaping cultural institutions. The programme is designed to offer a dynamic and collaborative space for critical thinking, experimentation and innovation, alongside the development of practical skills.

Participants will draw upon their own experiences and competencies to develop new approaches towards curating, programming, audience development and digital technology, while concepts such as public engagement, accountability and collaboration will be explored in detail. Participants will form an ongoing network of culture professionals with potential for future collaborations.

Tate Intensive will comprise around 25 selected participants from around the world. We are actively seeking a diverse range of professionals working in art galleries, museums and other cultural institutions at different stages of their careers, in a wide range of countries.

Tate Intensive is based on exchange and collaboration. Participants will be joined for a series of workshops by contributors including senior members of Tate staff, leading museum professionals and artists, as well as representatives of the Plus Tate network of UK visual art institutions. Daily visits to exhibitions and collection displays at Tate Modern and other London museums and galleries will complement discussions held in the new Switch House spaces at Tate Modern.
