Ever needed support in writing an application for work or an arts commission?  What kinds of things should you be looking for and what can you simply not ignore?

This session highlights things to be aware of when putting together any application for employment or for an arts commission. The session has been timed to coincide with the call for applications for the Develop collective commission for Making an Exhibition on 15 December.

Rawanne and Femi lead this session for participants to gain further knowledge and understanding about the application process. Together with participants they will cover:

  • key areas to look out for in a job description including responsibilities, personal specification and, of course, hours required and salary;
  • how the application for the Develop collective 2023/24 will work;
  • tips on how to make your application stronger;

There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the application process or expectations of the collective.  

This is a perfect opportunity to find out exactly how to apply.

Develop is a three-year programme (2023-2026) that supports and commissions emerging creatives aged 18-24 through a series of talks and workshops around a photography-based outcome each year.

The theme for 2023/4 is Making an Exhibition, with a focus on photography and archives. A programme of workshops and talks support this theme, providing participants with an introduction to a range of knowledge and skills related to making an exhibition.

18-24-year-olds can apply to become part of a cohort of six people who will collectively research, plan and deliver an exhibition and related events programme at The Photographers’ Gallery, opening in Summer 2024. Applications open on 15 December, and close on 3 January 2024.

Develop is supported by Kusuma Trust and individual contributors.
