David Gilbert

Freelance Curator / Producer / Educator

I have developed and delivered exhibitions, programmes and projects in the visual arts, working for organisations and freelance in galleries, in public spaces, in a site-responsive manner and within heritage sites and festivals.I have also led organisations of varying sizes and kinds – some like Creative Partnerships working across sectors, and others like The Art House having buildings and studio space, with artist development at the core of their purpose.I have raised substantial funding throughout my professional career to support organisations and projects, from ACE through RFO/NPO, Capital and G4A Lottery funding, Trusts and Foundations, and sponsorship from private sector companies. Above all I am passionate about creating opportunities for artists. That is the primary reason why I do what I do, and what has motivated me for the last 20 years.My recent work includes: working as Freelance Strategic Programme Producer for Artcore Gallery in Derby; D-LAB, an online commissioning project for Derbyshire; working as Freelance Development Manager with Primary studios in Nottingham; and as Freelance Programme Producer for The Art House in Wakefield. I frequently work with artists to develop, fund and produce their projects, and I have recently been working with artists Kate Genever, Tony Wade and Jason Wilsher-Mills. I am also an Associate Lecturer at Leeds Arts University teaching on the MA Curation Practices.
