Open Call: Fly Me Out Fund amplifies Black voices in the art & culture space

Text by CLOT Magazine

Black Curatorial is a conceptual creative agency providing spaces for Black curators, creatives and thinkers to discuss, dissect and build curatorial projects together in a critical and accountable way. We are fascinated by the healing power of immersive experiences and how they can reprogramme and soothe trauma. Our curatorial output prioritises this to contribute to in the pursuit of collective and collaborative healing through creativity and intentional curation. It reads on their website. 

Founded by Aliyah Hasinah, Black Curatorial’s vision and work has three legs. They help Black artists and curators travel for new opportunities and network, open up the art world to Black curators to play more and amplify Black voices in the art and culture space. 

Curation is important to our cultural consciousness because it sets the tone for cultural workers and global ethics in the long term. More trained and internationally minded Black Curators create more space for Black artists to thrive away from exoticism and inaccurate representations of their work. Says Aliyah Hasinah. 

The Fly Me Out Fund aims to provide a fresh sense of what is possible outside the largely underrepresented and institutionally racist art world of the UK. It is one of Black Curatorial’s ways of supporting Black Curators and Visual Artists in Barbados, Jamaica and the UK by enabling them to experience a new curatorial project, exhibition, biennial, cultural event or research access etc.

Now in its second year, Black Curatorial’s Fly Me Out Fund is back and applications are open. Black Curators and Visual Artists based in Barbados and Jamaica and Black Curators based in the UK are eligible to apply—the deadline is August 10, 2023.

You can apply here.
