International Deadline: December 1, 2017 – Tate invites applications for the next edition of Tate Intensive, held at Tate Modern, July 8 to 13, 2018.

Brought together in a spirit of exchange and collaboration, Tate Intensive participants are asked to contribute in an open and honest way to peer-led discussions throughout the week, drawing on their own experiences and case studies from their respective organisations, as well as exploring new ways of thinking and working. The programme includes keynotes by leading museum professionals and artists, and workshop sessions attended by members of Tate staff from across the institution. Daily visits to exhibitions and collection displays at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and other London cultural institutions complement discussions held in the Tate Exchange space at Tate Modern.

Participants join an ongoing network with potential for future collaborations.

Applications close at 12.00 (GMT) on 1 December 2017. Interviews for shortlisted candidates will take place 8–26 January 2018. Successful candidates will be informed by the end of February 2018.
