Curating Art and Cultures is a unique, two-year programme offered jointly by the University of Amsterdam, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and leading museums and cultural institutions in the Netherlands.
The programme is designed to train the curators of the future. Taking place in both the lecture hall and the exhibition space, it prepares you for a career as a professional curator by strengthening your disciplinary and theoretical foundations, and equipping you with the necessary research skills and practical experience.
The programme responds to the growing demand for academically-grounded curatorial professionals with excellent (inter)disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds. It teaches you to engage with crucial theoretical concepts and contemporary issues regarding the collection and display of art objects and cultural artefacts. It also encourages you to deepen your own disciplinary knowledge and develop your research practices, culminating in the Master's thesis.
In addition to developing your theoretical foundations, you will also have the opportunity to work as a 'curator in training' during the year-long, curatorial internship at one of the programme's partnering museums and cultural institutions. During the internship, you will receive hands-on training in all aspects of professional museum practice, from research for publications to organising exhibitions.
