Accentuate Curating Visibility

Reclaiming and Interpreting Disability Collections

We are delighted to announce our new project Curating Visibility, which is being delivered through our pioneering Accentuate Programme and funded by Arts Council England.  Curating Visibility builds on the success of Curating for Change with six new curatorial Fellowships for D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people, hosted by 6 partner museums across England.  Fellows will be hosted by Imperial War Museums Duxford, Food Museum, Dover Museum, Museum of London, Charleston and Barnsley Museums. Fellowships will take place over 15 months.

We will be opening recruitment for our first cohort of Fellowships in January 2024, with the final cohort recruitment starting in Summer 2024.
