NAVA is pleased to announce a new initiative in partnership with The Freedman Foundation supporting early career curators to develop their practice through overseas travel.
The Freedman Foundation is a private philanthropic organisation, which contributes funding to the visual arts, music, medicine and science. For the last 15 years, through The Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship for Emerging Artists administered by NAVA, The Freedman Foundation has been a generous benefactor to 74 emerging Australian artists wishing to undertake travel to gain a valuable learning experience that will help to develop their professional practice.
The inaugural Freedman Foundation International Scholarship for Curators will support an early career curator, or curatorial collective to undertake a mentorship, residency and/or develop their own program which may include establishing valuable contacts, conducting studio visits, and researching current international practices and exhibition programs with the aim of producing their own curatorial project within 12 months.
Applicants must be Australian residents and may apply for $8,000 to assist towards the cost of international travel, living expenses, and a curatorial project. Applications are now open and close midnight on Saturday 26 March 2016.
