This year Design Trust launched a new fellowship in collaboration with the Royal College of Art. Applications are invited for the Design Trust / RCA Fellowship in Design Curation, which is designed to support the development of curatorial careers in design. Application deadline is 23rd June 2017.
The Fellowship, which is open to applicants based in Hong Kong or the Greater Pearl River Delta region, addresses the burgeoning field of design curating in a global context and locates it within the interdisciplinary curatorial field. With a sponsored six-month tailored made course at the Royal College of Art and a six-month placement at a leading museum in London, the Fellowship includes a maintenance grant of £12,000. Additional support is also available from the RCA to support the development of research outcomes.
The Fellow will undertake 12 months of research supported by a tailored programme of academic training designed to broaden their knowledge and skills in curatorial practice, theory and understanding of design. The programme of studies will include history and theory seminars, curating workshops and a curatorial placement with one of the RCA’s external partners.
The closing date for application is 23rd June, 2017.
