Professional Development opportunities at Venice Biennale 2017

Arts NT is calling for Expressions of Interest from Territory arts workers to participate in the Venice Biennale 2017 Professional Development Program.

Director of Arts NT Angela Hill said they were seeking an Indigenous Territorian for the Indigenous Emerging Curator opportunity in addition to an NT based arts worker wanting to develop skills in supervising exhibitions for the NT Exhibition Team Leader opportunity.

“This professional development program is an essential element of Australia’s involvement at the Venice Biennale and aims to provide a platform for curators, arts writers and arts professionals to develop skills and gain on the job experience,” she said.

“The successful Indigenous emerging curator will travel to Venice with the Australian contingent for 10 days in May 2017 where they will have the opportunity to promote contemporary Australian art and connect with International peers, artists and organisations.

“The NT Exhibition Team Leader opportunity will run for five weeks and manage a team of volunteers, as well as daily operations of exhibiting Australian artist Tracey Moffatt and the Australian Pavilion during the Venice Biennale 2017.”

Exhibiting artist at the Venice Biennale 2017 Australian Pavilion Tracey Moffat is Australia’s first solo Indigenous artist to exhibit at Venice Biennale and has achieved national and international success with solo exhibitions in Europe, the United States and Australia.

The program is run in partnership with Arts NT and the Australia Council for the Arts and provides travel, accommodation and living costs.

Applications and supporting documents must be submitted by COB Friday 19 December 2016.
