Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance offers new certificate program, deadline Feb. 1, 2011
The ICPP brings artists, presenters, managers, and other performing arts professionals together to develop a responsive curatorial practice that takes the best from the fields of visual arts and performance.

Starting in summer 2011, the ICPP will offer a professional certificate program in Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. Students will study artistic and curatorial practice, social and cultural context, and entrepreneurial strategies and complete an independent project in consultation with an advisor. Through a close examination of the practical and theoretical concerns of performance work, graduates of the ICPP certificate program will:
-deepen their knowledge and skill base
-enhance their professional relationships
-become better advocates for performance in the marketplace

Instructors include ICPP Director Samuel A. Miller, Wesleyan professors Katja Kolcio and Claudia Tatinge Nacimento, and field professionals Doryun Chong of MoMA, Philip Bither of the Walker Art Center, and Judy Hussie-Taylor of Danspace Project. The certificate is a low-residency, nine-month program. Students will complete work online in between on-campus intensives at Wesleyan University. Dates for the 2011-12 on-campus intensives are: July 9-24, 2011, November 18-20, 2011, and March 3-5, 2012.
