Genesis Future Curators Programme

The new Genesis Future Curators Programme provides two two-year curatorial positions at the Royal Academy.

Open to anyone with an arts-related degree, the Genesis Future Curators are placed within the Exhibitions and Collections departments, providing a unique opportunity to gain a 360-degree view of the life of a Curator at the RA.  

The programme’s inaugural Genesis Future Curators are Natasha Fyffe (Exhibitions) and Gabriel Jamroz (Collections).

The Genesis Foundation’s relationship with the Royal Academy began in 2020 when its President Rebecca Salter was awarded the Genesis Foundation Prize. Rebecca used the prize money to develop a new programme that provides graduates of the RA School with the professional skills and resilience training needed to survive as practising artists in the commercial world.

“Post-pandemic, [the Genesis Future Curators Programme] is a fantastic opportunity for us to welcome two new curators to join our teams, opening up new opportunities in the art world, to gain first-hand experience from our curatorial teams and providing inclusivity by inviting graduates from across the UK to apply for these brand-new roles at the RA.”
