Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art- Callout for Disabled Curator!
MIMA are looking to appoint a curator who identifies as disabled to join us for a year-long funded project.
We are a gallery/ museum based in the centre of Middlesbrough in the Tees Valley that has an art collection, an exhibition programme and a busy programme of activities with the community.
We’re looking for someone to work with us from October 2019 to August 2020. Candidates should think of themselves as a curator who identifies as a disabled person. This project is part of a collaboration between MIMA, DASH, a disability-led visual arts organisation, and Midlands Art Centre (MAC) and supported by Arts Council England.
The curator will work with the collection at MIMA to do research and put together a public project. We are open to any interests and specialisms. The project can take any form: it might be a series of public events, an exhibition, a publication, or something else.
While the curator is here at MIMA they will:
- learn new skills
- work up ideas with the support of MIMA’s team
- develop and deliver a curatorial project at MIMA with our collection
- Deadline: 26 July 2019

Parade is a multi-media sound and film installation created by John Rea
Maindee Library, 79 Chepstow Road, Newport NP19 8BY
Thursday 14 Feb, 8pm / Friday 15 Feb, 8pm / Saturday 16 Feb, 2pm + 6pm
PARADE is a multi-media installation by John Rea that presents a new and unique view of Maindee, featuring the people themselves. It will involve special performances of the work in Maindee Library, alongside the launch of a specially designed online portal featuring individual portraits, that highlight the personal histories, opinions, and issues that matter to the people of Maindee, in their own words. It is hoped these sound portraits convey something of what it means to live in the area, in a new and revealing way, by giving a platform for the people to speak: the true voices of those who live, study, work, volunteer, and worship here.
This commission has been co-curated by Joanne Sutton (Maindee Unlimited) and Sarah Pace (Addo) and was funded as part of Finding Maindee – a three-year project supported by the Arts Council of Wales’ Ideas: People: Places strategic programme, which aims to test new models of regeneration and collaboration through the arts. Finding Maindee was part-funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Garfield Weston Charitable Trust and the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme through Newport City Council.
Llyfrgell Maindee Library is run by dedicated volunteers and managed by the trustees of registered charity, Maindee Unlimited. It is built upon a love for books, community solidarity, coffee and the preservation of services for future generations.
