Calum Bayne

Calum Bayne (he/him) is a Scottish curator exploring the connections between social justice, artistic intervention and ethical practice. This is exemplified by his role Programme and Practice at In-Situ, a Pendle-based interdisciplinary organisation working between arts practice, community engagement and ecology.

Projects at In-Situ require collaboration with the broader cultural sector, alongside ecology, heritage, government, community, and voluntary sectors. Calum’s work at In-Situ focuses on artist residencies and public realm commissions that embed local communities as equitable collaborators. Calum also contributes to the development of organisational policy, commissioning strategies and fundraising, including In-Situ’s successful NPO bid (2023-26).

Calum was the inaugural recipient of the British School at Rome and Newcastle University Connect Fellowship (2022). Through the fellowship he researched historic moments when underground activity met with government-led programming to enable reinvention of public space. A focus became the DIY culture of 1960s-70s Roman Cinema Clubs.

After achieving a Fine Art BA at Newcastle University with first class honours (2018), Calum went on to join The NewBridge Project’s Programming Committee (2020-21). Calum is a Trustee at youth-led arts charity, Blaze.
