CIMAM Travel Grant Program
Launched in 2005, CIMAM’s Travel Grant Program is designed to foster cooperation and cultural exchange between contemporary art curators and museums directors in emerging and developing economies and their counterparts in other regions of the world. CIMAM’s Travel Grant Program supports individuals’ curatorial and research development through their attendance to the Annual Conference where the most current concerns on contemporary art practices are being discussed.
Thanks to the generous support of the Getty Foundation, MALBA–Fundación Costantini, the Fubon Art Foundation and Alserkal Programming, CIMAM is awarding around 25 grants to support the attendance of contemporary art museum professionals to CIMAM’s 2017 Annual Conference The Roles and Responsibilities of Museums in Civil Society that will be held in Singapore, 10–12 November 2017.
The Getty Foundation fulfills the philanthropic mission of the Getty Trust by supporting individuals and institutions committed to advancing the greater understanding and preservation of the visual arts in Los Angeles and throughout the world. Through strategic grant initiatives, the Foundation strengthens art history as a global discipline, promotes the interdisciplinary practice of conservation, increases access to museum and archival collections, and develops current and future leaders in the visual arts. It carries out its work in collaboration with the other Getty programs to ensure that they individually and collectively achieve maximum effect.
