Other roles with Curating for Change:

If these dates or locations don’t suit you at this time, please note that there will be a later round of recruitment for Fellows in Spring 2022.

We will also be recruiting eight Trainees at other museums. These shorter, 40-day Traineeships are designed to provide an introduction to museum curation for those with little or no museum experience. We will be advertising these roles from early 2022.

All Fellows and Trainees will have opportunities to connect with our whole network of 18 museums, maximising their connections to a range of museums across the sector.

If you would like to apply for one of these roles when recruitment opens, please contact Jane Sparkes to be added to our mailing list and receive updates.
