Open calls for two projects ‘Beyond The Frame’ and ‘Tactical Interventions: The Diaspora Pavilion’ have been released today.

Tactical Interventions is a 22-month professional-development project during which ten selected artists will receive mentoring from leading professionals in the arts and will showcase their work in a Diaspora Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale.

Beyond the Frame is a 22-month professional-development project for UK-based curators and facilitators aimed at tackling the under-representation of professionals from diverse backgrounds at senior levels within the visual arts.

Applications for these projects must be submitted by midnight on Friday October 28th 2016.

ICF is a network that meets to discuss emerging issues of curatorial practice in the context of key events in the international arts calendar. ICF, in partnership with UAL, was recently awarded a grant from Arts Council England’s Elevate Fund for a two-year project tackling the under-representation of professionals from diverse backgrounds at senior levels within the visual arts.
