We are really thrilled to be welcoming Beatriz to the NewBridge team, and it’s great that we’ve been able to create this role with the help and support of the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries programme. Fairer access to working in the arts and cultural sector is something that we at NewBridge are particularly passionate about, and it’s amazing to see that this programme will be supporting 50 salaried jobs in arts and cultural organisations across the UK. Along with Beatriz we are excited to be attending a series of professional development events that will aid our learning and build upon inclusivity, intersectional approaches to recruitment, artist development and organisational change.
Beatriz is a curator, museologist and researcher. An enthusiast of non-hierarchical thinking, she believes in the equality of ideas and non-linear ways of composing and organizing them. Beatriz is interested in performance art as a form of critique, and guided by a theoretical approach, she works under an intersectional feminist framework. Her most recent research investigates strategies to decolonize the curatorial through Brazilian art practices.
