From November 2006 – April 2007, Iniva and independent cultural producer Colin Prescod developed and implemented the Inspire Network Course.
The Inspire Network engaged over 40 culturally diverse aspiring curators from across London and the UK. The network provided a course along with opportunities to meet curators, practising artists and specialists in the arts field. The course took place in museums such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Modern, British Museum, ICA and National Maritime Museum.
Participants were supported through classroom-style learning and intensive practical workshops, which also enabled them to engage with theory around curating.
The range of guests included curator Kit Hammonds from South London Gallery, Zoe Whitley from the V & A, assistant curator Ann Coxon from Tate Modern, director Sandy Narine from the National Portrait Gallery, artist Sonia Boyce, critic Marcus Verhagen, digital director Emma Quinn, and artist Keith Piper.
