Launched in 2005, CIMAM’s Travel Grant Program is designed to foster cooperation and cultural exchange between contemporary art curators and museums directors in emerging and developing economies and their counterparts in other regions of the world.
Over the years CIMAM’s travel grantees have constituted a remarkable group of professionals who have later become important protagonists in today’s modern and contemporary art museums and collections.
Since 2005 over 300 young curators and museum directors from emerging economies have been awarded support to attend CIMAM’s Annual Conference.
