We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Curatorial Development Programme.

Supported by the John Ellerman Foundation, the expansive programme will include an annual series of curatorial residencies. For us, curatorial knowledge is essential for thinking through the significance and exciting potentials of artistic practice and making it accessible to different audiences. We are therefore thrilled to be able to extend multiple opportunities to curators at all different stages of their careers.

Over the next three years, this programme will look to nurture diverse current and future generations of curators - supporting them to gain confidence, skills and experiences through the production and presentation of work that sits at the intersection of art and technology.

Residency holders will become valued contributors, leading on research and aiding in the delivery of exhibitions and events programmes. They will be encouraged to bring new voices and networks to our organisation, transfer knowledge, and influence continued institutional change.

Curatorial practice helps to shape the context and experiences of art for audiences in person, online and art historically. By supporting new voices to develop their practices, we can change the kinds of stories we tell and the artists we present to help shape our understanding of the world we live in.

- Maitreyi Maheshwari (Head of Programme, FACT)
