MIMA Curatorial Residency Call Out with DASH (Deadline 26/7/19)

MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art) are looking to appoint a curator who identifies as disabled to join them for a year-long funded project.

MIMA is a gallery/ museum based in the centre of Middlesbrough in the Tees Valley that has an art collection, an exhibition programme and a busy programme of activities with the community.

We’re looking for someone to work with us from October 2019 to August 2020. Candidates should think of themselves as a curator who identifies as a disabled person. This project is part of a collaboration between MIMA, DASH, a disability-led visual arts organisation, and Midlands Art Centre (MAC) and supported by Arts Council England.

The curator will work with the collection at MIMA to do research and put together a public project. We are open to any interests and specialisms. The project can take any form: it might be a series of public events, an exhibition, a publication, or something else.

While the curator is here at MIMA they will:

·        learn new skills

·        work up ideas with the support of MIMA’s team

·        develop and deliver a curatorial project at MIMA with our collection

·        Deadline: 26 July 2019

·        For application and more information please go to MIMA's website
