Since 2016 Grand Union has collaborated with the Department of History, Curating and Visual Studies at the University of Birmingham to create opportunities for early career curators to co-curate their first public exhibition and programme of events. Grand Union staff lead taught sessions on contemporary curating providing regular mentorship and support for students to realise exhibitions of an experimental and ambitious scale.
