DEADLINE: 15 august 2017

The SEA Foundation Curator in Residence programme is for emerging as 
well as established curators.

SEA Foundation welcomes applications from a wide spectrum of 
curatorial practices, research interests and professional 
backgrounds. We invite curators to apply for flexible residencies up 
to one month. The aim of the Curator in Residence Programme is to 
provide opportunities for curators to familiarise themselves with the 
Dutch visual art scene in the south of the Netherlands, to conduct 
research and make meaningful professional connections and 
relationships, create future work opportunities, refine their 
networking skills, and build other vital professional capacities.

Through these residencies, SEA Foundation aims to links and foster 
collaborations between artists in the south of the Netherlands, 
curators, art institutions and their artistic peers internationally.

The aims are:
* To support the production of art and the theory of art
* To evoke discourse on art and art practices within a local and global context
* To promote and relay critical and researched based production of art
* To facilitate exchange between art intermediaries and artists, 
creating an expert network

We expect that applicants will be developing projects or developing 
their research with some form of future public outcome in mind.

Artistic merit is the basis for selection. All applications will be 
judged a panel consisting of SEA Foundation team members that is 
complemented by international advisors.
