Call for Curators in Contemporary Craft - Emerging Curator

Are you sitting on an exhibition idea that you would like to bring to fruition but are unsure of the steps to take? Curators in Contemporary Craft is a new program to allow artists to develop their curatorial skills as part of our ongoing efforts to create professional development opportunities for Craft artists, and engaging exhibitions for our audiences. Expand your career in a supportive environment with access to mentorship from professional curators and organizers in the Fine Craft field.     This is your chance to develop the skills needed to curate an exhibition with the support and experience of the Alberta Craft Council Exhibitions team. From start to finish, the ACC team will be there to guide you through the process; from honing your theme and concept, coordinating artists, developing press releases and promotional material, planning, and implementing events to support and promote the exhibition, gaining skills in laying out and installing an exhibition, to writing an article for the Alberta Craft Magazine.  

The Alberta Craft Council will be paying a $500 curator honorarium, as well as CARFAC fees divided among exhibiting artists. 

 We are looking for individuals with minimal curatorial experience to curate a small group exhibition of 5 – 8 Alberta based artists (curator can be included as an exhibitor) and be available to put in the time needed to prepare a successful exhibition.
