Emerging Curators Group

The Emerging Curators Group (ECG) is a supportive forum for the next generation of curators in the UK, enabling peers to come together and share experiences and thinking around curating British art.

BAN awards bursary funding to fifteen emerging curators each year. Now entering its sixth round, the Network is working to connect the group with expertise in the field of British art through a variety of events and resources. Bursary funding supports attendance at workshops, as well as self-facilitated research and engagement with the wider British Art Network programme.

You can learn more about each year’s group by following the links below. Follow the links to individual members’ profiles in the Member Directory to find out more about their activities and outputs.
