Headley Fellowships with Art Fund
A programme designed to provide experienced curators with the time and resources to carry out research projects deepening specialist knowledge and expertise around their collections. It has been made possible with support of the Headley Trust.
A new programme, the Headley Fellowships with Art Fund, is offering the opportunity for curators to take time off from their days jobs to carry out in depth collections research. The £600k fund will allow curators to either take six months off full time or a year off part time, and will pay for temporary staff to fill their post. The Art Fund is seeking projects that will:
- Result in a significant public outcome for the museum.
- Involve research into a part of the collections that a museum may not have the specialist expertise to use effectively.
- Develop the curator’s knowledge and expertise, and spread the learning across the sector.
Potential fellows should be nominated by their museum, and will be budgeted for at a fixed rate of £19,250 for 0.5FTE. The deadline for applications is 15th October
