Posted by: Madeleine Haddon
The Center for Curatorial Leadership 2014 Application is now available online at http://www.curatorialleadership.org/application.html. Applications will be accepted electronically or by mail until July 26, 2013.
The CCL seeks full-time curators who are currently employed at art museums
where they are charged with the care, display, and interpretation of
objects as well as the organization of temporary exhibitions.
Nominations will be sought from museum directors and administrators, but
self-nominations are also strongly encouraged.
Applicants should be proven scholars and leaders in their field. They
should also have demonstrated some leadership initiative, either in
their museums or in other aspects of their lives (e.g., community
service, board service, etc.).
Applications will be reviewed by the director of the CCL and a small committee of current and former museum directors.
Beginning January 5 – 17, 2014, the program will consist of the following:
In January, a two-week intensive program in New York that includes teaching (led by faculty members from Columbia University
Business School) and practical exposure and assignments (to be provided
by museums, cultural institutions, and other civic organizations across
A mentorship/residency with a museum director from an institution different from the fellow’s home institution.
- A student mentoring project, assigned in January, to cover the span of the fellowship.
- A one-week program in June that includes instruction, coaching, and presentation of team assignment.
The 2014 tuition is $2,500 per Fellow to cover a portion of the program
expenses. The CCL will absorb the rest of the cost of travel, hotel,
and other expenses related to the program. Tuition assistance will be
available to all accepted candidates on an as-need basis; it is strongly
encouraged, however, that museums support the professional development
of their curators and underwrite the tuition fee.
