2017 Marsh Awards - call for nominations

Marsh Awards for Excellence in Gallery Education 2017

Do you know someone doing excellent and inspirational work in gallery or visual art education and learning?

 

Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education and the Marsh Christian Trust are delighted to announce the Marsh Awards for Excellence in Gallery Education 2017. The Awards, which recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working in learning and education within gallery or visual arts contexts (freelance, salaried or as volunteers) in the UK and internationally, grant winners £500 to spend on their professional development.

 

Nominations Deadline: 10am, Monday 14 August 2017.

 

The Awards

Awards of £500 each will be offered to four individuals in the UK and one internationally, working in learning or education in or for galleries or visual arts organisations, who have shown dedication or innovation in their work. The Awards will be announced at the Engage International Conference in Hull on 29 November 2017 (the conference will run from 29-30 November 2017).

Winners should use the Award to support their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and each will be asked to complete a short feedback form by March 2018.

Since 2011, the Awards have successfully enabled winners to develop their arts education practice through funding attendance of courses and conferences, the joining of professional associations, visiting of good practice in the UK and abroad, funding of research, and by inspiring personal and professional confidence through the recognition of their work.

 

Who can be nominated?

Nominations are encouraged for colleagues at all stages of their careers, working freelance, in salaried positions or as volunteers. Engage welcomes nominations for those working with organisations of all sizes. Nominations for non-members of Engage are also invited. Nominators should be a colleague or a representative of an organisation who has worked with the nominee.

Judging criteria and process

Nominations should demonstrate how nominees have exceeded the expectations of their role, by showing dedication or innovation in their work.

Judging will take place and winners informed in late September. Applications will be shortlisted by a panel of experts in gallery education and representatives from the Marsh Christian Trust and Engage. The Marsh Christian Trust will determine the final winners. The Awards will be presented during the Engage International Conference in Hull (29-30 November 2017). The Award ceremony will include a description of the winners’ education work and achievements, and winners will be invited to submit a short video about their work to screen. UK winners will be offered travel expenses (up to £150) to attend the Awards event, dinner and a complimentary day place to attend Conference on the day of the ceremony or the following day (regretfully, we cannot offer travel expenses for international winners to attend the Award presentation).

'I really valued receiving the award, which gave a boost to confidence and encouraged reflection... It was equally valued within the gallery team and assisted in raising the profile of the Learning Programme as a whole'.
