Applications are now open for the second cycle of the AAMC Foundation Engagement Program for International Curators, made possible by major support from the Terra Foundation for American Art. The Program will accept three non-US based curators for a two-year program and three US Liaisons for a one year program, working on or having worked within exhibitions and projects that explore historic American Art (c. 1500-1980), including painting; sculpture; works on paper, including prints, drawing and photography; decorative arts; and excluding architecture; design; and performance. Applications are now open for International Awardees and US Liaisons, and are due by Friday, October 20, 2017 at 12pm ET. 

The first year of the program pairs an International Awardee with a US Liaison for a direct partnership, during which time, the pair will conduct ongoing discussions on the area sought by the International Awardee, and the Liaison will offer insight into the International Awardee's desired focus of advancement. 

The second year of the Program provides the International Awardee with a travel stipend, and complimentary registration for AAMC & AAMC Foundation's Annual Conference and Meeting. The International Awardee will also be a part of AAMC's Curator's Circle donor group, allowing for interaction with leaders at this level, and bringing their voice and experience to our supporters. Year two also includes placement on an AAMC Committee to add another international voice among our leadership base, and to assist in advancing AAMC's initiatives. The Program will conclude with an International Awardee-led webinar presented to the full AAMC membership on a topic relevant to the Program, or a current project of the International Awardee.

Follow-up beyond the two years would continue with access to the virtual-chat space for current, past, and incoming classes, an alumni reception every other year, and review of initial Program goals. 

Through fostering international relationships between curators, the Program aims to not only provide opportunities for professional development and exchange within our field, but also to expand and strengthen the international curatorial community and give primacy to the curatorial voice in the international dialogue among museum professionals.
