The NEON Curatorial Exchange is delivered by the Whitechapel Gallery in partnership with NEON Organisation in Athens.

It builds links between emerging curators in the UK and Greece, so that best practice can be shared and new ideas developed, with the aim of championing curatorial excellence.

The NEON Curatorial Exchange is open via  application to emerging curators in Greece and alumni of postgraduate curating courses in London; Goldsmiths College; the London Metropolitan University; the Royal College of Art; and the Courtauld Institute.

Participants benefit from a four day study trip to Athens and London, devised and led by Whitechapel Gallery curator Nayia Yiakoumaki. The programme is designed to open up networking and professional development opportunities for young curators.
