Visual artists within 10 years of graduating or establishing their practice are invited to apply for a bursary of £1,000 for the development of their practice. This could be for the costs of making new work or exploring a new collaboration, mentoring, professional or skills based training, travel or a combination of these. There are 12 bursaries available and there is no application fee.
Now in its second year, the project aims to encourage experimentation and crucially to provide an opportunity for artists to define and determine their own development needs. Through these bursaries we would like to support activity which it may be hard to find specific funding for elsewhere, a specific piece of work or idea which may or may not have a tangible outcome. Each selected artist will receive mentoring from the Jerwood Visual Arts team and be part of a peer-network, attending facilitated sessions as a group.
We are interested in hearing ambitious ideas and are seeking propositions from visual artists who can demonstrate through a written proposal what the bursary will enable within the development of their work. Applicants are asked to be ambitious will be selected on the basis of how much developmental impact the opportunity is likely to have on their practice, the feasibility of the project within the given budget and the need for the proposed activity to take place.
