Young Curators

The successful Young Curators in 2017 worked alongside arts professionals to select the exhibition and short list the winner for the Cumbrian Artist of the Year award- an exhibition that was held at the Gallery at Rheged from 6th Sept to 5th Nov 2017. The selection process was led by two arts professionals: curators, Thomas Dukes from Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool and Ainslie Roddick from CCA in Glasgow.

This year the Young Curators scheme offered participants the opportunity to take part in the Bronze Arts Award, a qualification equivalent to a QCF Level 1 standard in the areas of art form knowledge and understanding, creativity and communication.
