I am writing to share about an opportunity through our practicum program that I thought may be of interest to students at OCAD University.


This one-year, hands-on learning opportunity allows individuals to receive direct mentorship on research practices that support the presentation, production, and critical analysis of contemporary art. The practicum candidate will have access to the archives and collection of Walter Phillips Gallery to produce an exhibition and other public presentations of this material. This practicum role complements studies in art history and curatorial practice. There is a stipend associated with this opportunity as well, as it is a full-time commitment.


The deadline for applications April 11th, 2018, and the link to the application is https://www.banffcentre.ca/programs/curatorial-research-practicum/20180108


If you would be open to sharing the position with any alumni or current students that you think may be interested I would truly appreciate it. Many thanks in advance for your consideration.

Kind regards,



Sarah Fox
