Curator Incubator

A development programme for aspiring curators. 

This project is an opportunity for emerging curators to co-devise forthcoming exhibitions at Waterside, covering contemporary art, digital art and animation. A series of talks, open to all, from leading curators further explores the curator’s work.

Selected curators are supported by experienced mentors and a small commission is offered to successful candidates.

In 2017 we supported Georgia Taylor Aguilar in curating her first show in the Lauriston Gallery at Waterside, the Cosgrove Hall Films Exhibition.
