SCAN helps to launch Curatorial Studio, the first project of its kind in Scotland.

Responding to the needs of students graduating from curatorial courses and their peers working in a variety of organisational contexts across Scotland, the aim of Curatorial Studio is to create a supportive peer-learning environment for curators in the early stages of their career.

Curatorial Studio developed through a partnership between SCAN (Scottish Contemporary Art Network), the MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme; a partnership between The Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, the curator-led Framework programme and CCA Glasgow. During the initial 10-month period the partnership will support up to 15 selected participants from across Scotland to develop their curatorial practices.

A programme of weekend seminars and workshops will be organised for and with the group, focusing on specific areas of practice. Based in Glasgow, but peripatetic, events will be structured in order to encourage momentum within the group and build confidence, trust and communication between the participants. The programme aims to encourage cooperative learning by bringing group discussion to the fore as a means of engaging with contemporary art theory and by extending a supportive network to those participating.

The initial programme is organised by Kirsteen Macdonald, Framework / PhD candidate and Visiting Lecturer at The Glasgow School of Art.
