Opportunity: Townhouse Curatorial Program

Townhouse Curatorial Program, Cairo, Egypt
Application deadline: January 20, 2008

The Townhouse Gallery of contemporary art would like to invite professionals with a demonstrated interest in curatorial practice, critical writing or arts management to apply for an arts management/curatorial program. The course will be taught by cultural practitioners from Spain, the UK, Egypt and the broader Middle East region throughout 2008, on a part-time basis so as to accommodate those currently in employment.

The program has been designed based on feedback gathered during a pilot curatorial workshop at the Townhouse Gallery in 2007 and will be structured around a series of modules on contemporary art theory, criticism, fundraising, and innovative curatorial practices. All modules will consist of presentations by guest practitioners followed by seminars during which participants will have the opportunity to discuss and get first-hand feedback on an arts project they are currently developing. Program participants will be given reading materials in advance and will be required to work on a curatorial proposal throughout the year. At the end of the course, students will re- submit their curatorial proposals and the guest teachers will choose one project to be presented at The Townhouse Gallery.
