Please email your CV and 4 small jpegs (not more than 2Mb in total) to

Unsolicited proposals

Towner’s exhibitions and events are programmed up to three years in advance on the invitation of the Director and Senior Management Team who work closely with artists to develop and realise the production of exhibitions and events. For this reason we do not accept unsolicited proposals and cannot cover costs to return proposals if they are submitted.
