Call for UK Curator: Harmful Practices in Nepal

Call for a UK curator to work with a Nepali photojournalist (artist) to develop an exhibition for our Women of the World Festival in March 2022

The British Council has been organising the Women of the World Festival in Nepal since 2017. The Festival is now in its fifth edition. Since 2018, the Festival editions have worked with artists to visually exhibit harmful practices affecting women/girls to raise awareness of key issues and their intersections with other socio-cultural barriers.

The total commitment period for the curator is 4 months (November to March) requiring up to 25 days of work across that period. To support the delivery of their responsibilities, British Council in Nepal will issue a grant award of GBP 4000.

Additionally, British Council Nepal will issue an artist grant and provide a budget for the WOW Festival production team to design and fabricate an exhibition for the content. Finally, the exhibition will be integrated into a digital campaign and platform will be produced to host public programming reporting on the process, lessons, and outcomes of the collaboration.
