Julie’s Bicycle events for powering action on climate change in the cultural community

Julie’s Bicycle are hosting two fantastic events exploring climate change and the creative/cultural sectors:

Building Culture
Mac Birmingham, 28 Feb 2017

This one day event will explore the opportunities and challenges of climate change for cultural buildings, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, design approaches, and resilience strategies, through in-depth case studies and panel led discussion.

Building Culture is a follow on event to our highly popular Fit for the Future event held in London at the Lyric Hammersmith in September 2016. This event will build on our understanding of how to manage, shape, and envision our buildings, supporting the development of an environmentally sustainable sector, and exploring how to put in to practice the principles of the Julie’s Bicycle Fit for the Future guide.

The 2017 deadlines for Art Fund’s curatorial grants scheme have been announced. Since the programme launched in 2012 Art Fund has helped 247 curators, scholars and researchers with 225 projects. Last year the annual pot of funding increased by 50% to £75,000. Grants are for travel and other practical costs to help curators undertake collection and exhibition research projects in the UK or abroad.

The programme is open to curators who work across the full range of fine and applied art collections in museums and galleries that hold at least provisional accreditation and are open to the public. In addition, in recognition of the need for new skills, knowledge and research to benefit museum collections for the future, these grants are also available to researchers, art historians and academics from other relevant and related disciplines, retired curators, and other museum professionals who plan to work within and alongside museums to improve the use and understanding of their fine and applied art collections. Applications from individuals not based in a museum or gallery must be accompanied by a letter of support from an accredited, or provisionally accredited, public collection.​
