De La Warr Pavilion (DLWP) and Flatland Projects are partnering on an exciting new curatorial fellowship programme: an opportunity for an emerging curator to develop skills in curating and arts management through mentorship and practical exhibitions experience over a 6-month period from September 2022 – February 2023.

You will collaborate with both galleries through a varied programme of activities, including studio visits, hands-on experience of developing exhibitions and the opportunity to develop a new exhibition at Flatland Projects opening in February 2023.

This opportunity is open to anyone over 18 years of age who has no more than 5 years curatorial experience, including applicants who have no experience at all.
