Tate, in collaboration with Delfina Foundation, invites applications for the Brooks International Fellowship Programme 2024 - the tenth year of the programme.

Tate is excited to be offering three 6-month Fellowship opportunities, to be hosted in the below Departments and Divisions at Tate.

Brooks International Fellowship 2024 in Collection Management
2 April - 15 September 2024
Tate encourages applications from candidates working globally in the field of collection management to undertake a programme of research into the need to embed environmental sustainability in relation to collection management practice. Using Tate’s collection as the focus, the research will consider how institutions transport, acquire, lend, borrow, manage and share their collections across institutions and countries.

Brooks International Fellowship 2024 in Visitor Communications
2 April - 15 September 2024
Tate encourages applications from candidates working globally with existing research in visitor communications, or a related subject. The Fellow will conduct research into one of three options: the use of digital tools in visitor communications; onsite provision for international audiences; or handling visitor communications in the contested public realm. Candidates should bring their perspectives into dialogue with Tate and Delfina Foundation and will jointly devise and deliver the research programme with the Visitor Communications team.

Brooks International Fellowship 2024 in Tate Modern Curatorial
8 July - 22 December 2024
Tate encourages applications from candidates to explore modernist histories of abstraction across West Asia and North Africa. The Fellowship presents an opportunity to work closely with Tate curatorial colleagues to support new and ongoing research while contributing the broader landscape of museum and curatorial practices. The researcher would be involved in mapping connections between West and South Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

In the ‘Additional Information’ section below, please see the ‘Job Description / Person Specification’ document for more information about each Fellowship.

During their Fellowships, the Brooks Fellows will be part of a Tate team, actively participating in gallery projects and discussions, with special access to Tate’s programme, collection, staff and wider networks.

The Fellows will reside at Delfina Foundation, where they will contribute to its own programme by presenting on their research or practice to a range of audiences and participating in its public programmes.

The fully funded Brooks International Fellowships are made possible by the generous support of the Rory and Elizabeth Brooks Foundation.

The successful candidate will receive:

  • A six-month Fellowship commencing in April or July 2024, based at Tate in London, UK, with supported travel to Tate sites and other UK cultural institutions;

  • Participation in the residency programme at Delfina Foundation, including accommodation at its residency in central London;
