Cambridge Curiosity & Imagination (CCI) is offering four places for early career Artist Educators on a new professional development programme developed in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, Goldsmiths University & Kettle’s Yard. This programme is designed to nurture new talent. It has been developed in recognition of the need to equip early career Artist Educators with access to appropriate development routes and ensure relevant and timely support and opportunities.
