BACKGROUND

Node Center is an art organization focused on curatorial practice. We work to expand and challenge the current limits of art and curation to stimulate different ways of approaching these practices. During the past three years we have held eight curatorial residencies which drew together groups of curators to provide basic practical and theoretical skills. Each residency resulted in an exhibition and publication. We also have an ever-growing platform of online courses, bringing together participants worldwide. Now we take it a step further with the Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant.

THE INNOVATORS GRANT

Through our Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant we bring together six risky thinkers/makers willing to expand the use of art and curation. With the idea of looking out from an art perspective, we will explore through the Program how art can enrich and provide practical uses to education.

The Program will focus on art-thinking rather than the art-object, applying the possibilities of art to education in other fields. By art-thinking, we are referring to strategies of knowledge that question the everyday, using intuitive, creative and poetic approaches to find different access points or pathways to known topics. Possible techniques could include making unexpected connections between disparate topics, ‘learning by doing’ and emphasising the visual.

Deadline: 1 February 2015
