This year’s AAH Careers Day will be hosted by the University of Manchester in the newly refurbished Whitworth Gallery. This event is aimed at recent graduates, undergraduates, sixth-form students and all those who are interested in pursuing a career in the increasingly competitive arts and heritage sector.
The Careers Day will bring together a wide range of speakers from different fields within the arts and heritage sector, who will share professional expertise and experience in areas such as curatorship, conservation, arts journalism, gallery marketing and education, and research.
Attendees will have the opportunity to explore different career possibilities within the art world, and gain insights into what these professional positions might entail, including advice on freelance working. Refreshments will be provided during breaks between sessions in order to give participants the chance to talk informally with the speakers, and to discuss more specific careers advice.
The event is open to both AAH members and non-members. See details here: www.aah.org.uk/events/careers-in-art-history
