EUNIC is delighted to present the Curatorial Exchange Programme 2012 for young Russian curators internship in European museums and galleries.

Education and professional development of the new generation of young curators is now a top priority for the Russian cultural organisations, as well as for related professional associations. Therefore, EUNIC has developed a project that gives its participants a unique opportunity to advance in career, study the European art market and build new professional contacts in Austria, Germany, France, Romania, Sweden, the UK and other countries. Young Russian curators will get internships (from 3 weeks to 2 months) in the leading museums and contemporary art galleries in Europe.

The programme is designed for young people who already have experience in curatorial work in the field of contemporary art. We hope that the outcome of this long-term project will be participants’ qualification update and establishment of professional contacts between the countries.
Curators for internship will be selected after the competition among application forms sent from 15 March till 31 May 2012 to, and the following interviews with candidates. The internships will take place in different time set by the countries leading the project. 
Please note, the deadline for the candidates applying for internship in Germany is 4 May 2012.
Full information about the project as well as the application can be dowloaded below.
