ICF is a network that meets to discuss emerging issues of curatorial practice in the context of key events in the international arts calendar. ICF in partnership with UAL University of the Arts London was recently awarded a grant from the Art Council’s Elevate fund for a two-year project targeting the under-representation of professionals from BAME backgrounds at senior levels within the visual arts.

The Elevate Fund was set up to tackle the under-representation of diverse organisations nationally, particularly BAME and Disability-led, and to strengthen the resilience of those who are contributing to the Creative Case for Diversity.
