The YEMAA Centre for Contemporary Culture and the Goethe Institute in Kazakhstan have announced an open call for Kazakhstan's first online school for young curators, Curator in the Face of Crisis.

The program of the school is designed to provide young curators with the tools to create independent, socially relevant art and research projects. Additionally, the program will support participants in securing funding and the necessary infrastructure for their projects. The curriculum includes modules in writing, reading, storytelling, management and economics of contemporary art, history of thought, and organization of a research project.

The school will be held from June 17th through 30th. At the end of the program, each participant will have a fully conceived personal art project, research, or exhibition concept.
