Since 2015, the Kharkiv Municipal Gallery has launched an educational project — short term intensive training for young Ukrainian curators selected via open call. Teachers are cultural figures from Ukraine, Germany and Poland. The Curatorial Training provides an extensive educational program, which includes a week-long workshop for students, visits to the Kharkiv leading art institutions and studio visits, as well as 3 public lectures for the general public. The project is designed to fill the gaps in Ukrainian curatorial education and meet the needs of the development of Ukrainian contemporary art. The collaboration of young professionals with established specialists contributes to the professional growth of a new generation of curators and critics, as well as the popularization of contemporary art among a wide audience. That is why in addition to private lectures only for participants of the Curatorial Training, open lectures aimed towards a wide audience are being held. The Curatorial Training contributes to the integration of Ukrainian contemporary art into the global context, development of the professional network and communication, and the emergence of new collaborative projects.
