Organised by Cultural Journalism Campus, CJC Fellowship returns to Art Basel for the fifth year in a row in March 2018. Taught and mentored by experienced industry professionals, each year up to TEN CJC fellows are selected to undergo intensive training through writing workshops, gallery visits and lectures on cultural and creative industries in Asia. Stationed at Art Basel to cover the art fair as well as other cultural events in March, fellows receive hands-on media training through producing Culture Express, CJC’s newspaper which is distributed on location at Art Basel and through the digital realm. For more information on the past editions of CJC Fellowship, please visit CJC’s website.
We are looking for students who have a strong interest in the media and are passionate about arts and culture, with aspirations to become a cultural journalist and an art critic in the future. Those who major in journalism, media studies, fine art, cultural studies and related disciplines will have an advantage but this is not essential to participate.
Training will begin on the first weekend of March, with assignments given throughout the first four weeks of March. We are stationed at Art Basel from March 26 to 31.
You will have full access to Art Basel and other concurrent cultural events that take place.
Deadline for application is February 2, 2018, 11:55 pm. Send your CV and two writing samples (in English AND/OR Chinese) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Successful applicants will be notified by February 10, 2018.
