The Brooks International Fellowship Programme supports two research fellows each year to work with a Tate host team in a range of disciplines across the museum, including research in art history, learning, community and partnerships, collection care, research and interpretation, and digital practice.
At the core of the programme is the opportunity for Brooks Fellows to develop their research practice, while collaborating with Tate to provide mutual benefit to and share new perspectives with the museum.
Tate is proud to partner with the Delfina Foundation on the programme. Brooks Fellows benefit from the foundation’s international residency programme throughout their six-month fellowships.
The Brooks International Fellowship Programme is generously funded by the Rory and Elizabeth Brooks Foundation.

Current Brooks International Fellows
Fellows Sofía Babis and Victoria Munn are hosted by Tate and the Delfina Foundation between April and September 2023.
Sofía Babis’ fellowship is based in Tate Digital & Innovation, hosted by Antonio Martinez (Digital Product Designer) and George Keevill (Commercial Systems Engineer).
During her fellowship, Sofía will be collaborating with colleagues across Tate to conduct research and develop a learner-centred online model for adult learning experiences.
Sofía is a User Experience (UX) professional with a strong passion for education and the potential it holds when approached from a human-centred perspective. Through her research practice, Sofía aims to demonstrate the transformative power of placing the learner at the centre of the design process to create engaging educational experiences.
Sofía holds a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Psychology, with her final dissertation on the design of educational spaces and its impact on the learning process. Sofia was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is currently based in London.
Victoria Munn’s fellowship is based in Tate Britain Curatorial, hosted by Carol Jacobi (Curator, British Art, 1850–1915) and Amy Concannon (Senior Curator, Historic British Art).
During her residency, Victoria will conduct research for a forthcoming exhibition at Tate Britain.
Victoria is a researcher, currently pursuing a PhD, supported by a full scholarship at the University of Auckland. Titled ‘Colour me Beautiful’, Victoria’s doctoral thesis analyses early modern Europeans’ investment in hair colour, establishing the practical methods undertaken to dye hair, and drawing upon empirical texts, theoretical treatises, poetry and painting.
Victoria has worked in several art institutions, including Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Auckland Museum and Adam Art Gallery, and participated in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection internship programme in 2017. She writes regularly on the contributions of women artists to New Zealand art history.
