Are you interested in preserving history and culture to make it shareable and accessible for everyone? If you can see yourself working in museums, archaeology, arts organisations and charities, libraries, archives, historic buildings or historic sites, our New Curators Project could be the perfect fit for you.

Run by UCL Special Collections and Newham Heritage Month, ten successful applicants will get the chance to develop skills and experience relevant to jobs in the cultural heritage sector. You don't need a degree and it's a friendly, fun way of learning about this field and taking your first steps towards a career.

Previous applicants have gone on to work for organisations such as Toynbee Hall, Tate and The Roundhouse as well as at UCL. 

The deadline for applications is 8pm on Saturday 17 February 2024.
