TEG Connects 2024: Bursaries Announcement

TEG is pleased to announce that for the second year, long-term Corporate members Momart and Constantine are co-supporting five bursaries for first-time TEG Connects attendees.

These places are for people who face barriers to developing a career in the exhibitions sector due to ethnicity, disability, socio-economic background and gender identity or sexual orientation (LGBTQIA+).

These bursaries are part of TEG’s inclusive development as an Arts Council England Investment Principles Support Organisation (IPSO).

Bursary recipients will receive a free individual delegate place to attend TEG Connects 2024 on Wednesday 17 April at Coventry Transport Museum and up to £156 towards travel/accommodation costs.

Bursaries will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until all five bursaries have been allocated.

Previous bursary recipients said:

“As I am very new to the museum and exhibitions world, this was a great experience to network with museum professionals from all over the country and learn about the exhibitions they are working on. It was inspiring to be surrounded by individuals at different points in their careers. I hope aspiring professionals underrepresented in the sector will have equal opportunities for development.”
Ameena Hashmi

“TEG Connects has provided me with the opportunity to connect with other attendees from a wide range of different organisations, whom I may never have come across otherwise. Through these networking conversations I have been inspired, which has fuelled my creativity towards my ongoing projects.”
Rana Ibrahim
