Accentuate Curating for Change

Accentuate Curating for Change

Disabled people leading in museums

Screen South, through its pioneering Accentuate Programme, has received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £950,900.00 for an England-wide heritage project that aims to be transformational for the museum sector.

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, Curating for Change will provide a landmark Fellowship and Traineeship programme which includes fully funded paid work placements with mentoring and training opportunities for D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people wanting to pursue a career within museums. Fellows and Trainees will be hosted by more than 20 partner museums from across England and each Fellow will have space to research and curate a range of new exhibitions and events for more than 240,000 visitors across 9 locations. This is the first time that such a significant range and calibre of museums have come together to create a network of activities that will begin to tackle the under-representation of disabled people in our museums.
