About the program

Through the Fellowship for Emerging Curators, the AFA invites individuals and/or groups of individuals to submit a proposal for an online exhibition of Albertan visual art. The program was established in 2014 to:

  • support the growth and development of curatorial talent
  • encourage more diverse audiences to engage with the AFA Art Collection
  • increase virtual access to holdings which may otherwise not be available for traditional exhibitions

The Fellowship for Emerging Curators is intended to bring a new perspective to the artworks and artists featured in the AFA's collection.

How can I submit a proposal?

The AFA invites proposals for the fellowship every two years. The AFA is not currently accepting new applications. 

What is Google Arts & Culture?

Google Arts & Culture, also known as the Google Cultural Institute, was launched in 2011, and uploaded 42 exhibits online on October 10, 2012. The platform was designed to make cultural material available and accessible to everyone, and to digitally preserve it to educate and inspire future generations.

Using Google Arts and Culture as an online exhibition platform is intended to create greater exposure for the AFA Art Collection, especially for artworks that cannot be used in regular AFA programming.
