The Bold Tendencies Art Trainee Programme was founded in 2014 by Diana Córdoba Barrios, our Managing Director. The Art Trainee Programme was inspired by Diana’s personal experience on the Internship Programme at The Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
Diana moved to Venice from Mexico to take part in the Programme, then being promoted to Coordinator, running the prestigious programme for the Museum. Diana has supervised the ATP at Bold since it was started, overseeing its growth and development as well as its delivery year on year.
Since 2014 the Bold Programme has been completed by 215 Trainees, joining us from all parts of the UK and further afield. Our working and learning Programme aims to give participants immersion in the day-to-day life of our non-profit arts organisation and help develop future-proof skills, as well as fostering long-term connections between each other and our wider networks.
Bold Tendencies welcomes all applications irrespective of experience or background. We are committed to provision without high barriers to entry for young people of outstanding creativity and individuality interested in pursuing a career in culture and creative industries.
We acknowledge the huge potential of young people to add value to wider cultural life. We support this by continually evolving how our Programme is best structured, and consistently nurturing access to the professional proximity and opportunities critical to kick-starting a career in the exciting world of arts and culture, as well as building our network into the future.
