New curatorial opportunity launched by the Art Fund

The Headley Fellowships are part of an ongoing initiative by the Art Fund to encourage the development of UK collections expertise, and are intended to give curators – especially those based in smaller or regional museums – the time and resource to work with focused areas of their collections, deepening expertise within their museum and sharing specialist knowledge both with the public and across the sector.

The programme is open to mid-career and senior curators, and those with curatorial responsibility, and practically will give curators time away from their day-to-day responsibilities to embark on a bespoke period of research and development. Headley Fellowships with Art Fund aim to encourage the production of ambitious and high-quality museum projects which have collections at their core, while investing in museums across the UK and their curators, helping them to realise exceptional ideas for communicating with a spectrum of audiences.

Full details on the aims and scope of the scheme can be found at https://www.artfund.org/headley.

Applications are open now with a deadline of 15 October.
