Tate Liverpool

Inspiring Spaces


 What can a future gallery be? What can Tate Liverpool do to revolutionise these spaces and push the boundaries of hybrid spaces within a gallery context? Tate Liverpool is looking for research into the future of gallery spaces with a particular focus on learning and corporate hire spaces. They are looking for examples for world-class galleries that use their spaces innovatively and provide exciting and surprising opportunities for learning and entertaining, to help inform Tate Liverpool’s refurbishment of its hospitality and learning spaces. See the full project proposal here

Researchers can respond to one or more of the research questions listed in the “Desired Outcomes” section of the project proposal. To apply to this project please send your ideas on how you would approach the project brief by completing this short Project Proposition and send it to the PGR Placements and Partnerships Officer (rosalinda.quintieri@manchester.ac.uk) to discuss the opportunity.

The Officer will then advise on next steps and offer support in completing a full PGR Placement Application Form to get financial support via the NWCDTP Placement Scheme. Once approved, researchers will receive one-to-one support in developing a project plan, in agreement with the partner, at the beginning of the project, and then coaching until project completion, including guidance on how to use remote tools for project management and collaborative work, and support for final dissemination of results.

Please read the Guidelines document for eligibility criteria.

The findings of this research will feed into a wider research project held at the Tate this year to develop the spaces of the gallery and make them more inclusive and multi-functional.
Project Duration: 12 weeks, from 1 April to 31 June 2021, that can be taken full time or part time by one or more PhD researchers.

Deadline for final applications 21 March 2021.
