Award Value: £3,000
The Crafts Council has been chosen as the recipient of the Richard Seager Annual Arts Award, to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We are now looking for an emerging maker or designer to respond to our brief and create a Family Learning Station to be used and enjoyed at the Crafts Council Gallery.
At the Crafts Council we aim to inspire making, empower learning and nurture craft businesses; we believe everyone should enjoy craft and have access to free creative learning tools and resources.
The Family Learning Station will house a series of activities and resources for families to enjoy, including handling objects made by a range of makers. The station will provide a clear and visible sign that we are a warm, welcoming, and family friendly space.

Who can apply:
The Richard Seager Annual Arts Award is open to individuals and collaborative partnerships in the early stages of their career. They may either have completed a university or vocational course within the last 7 years or may be self-taught and have established their business within the last 7 years.
We aspire to remove barriers and be open to all and strongly encourage applications from individuals currently under-represented in the creative and cultural sectors.
The Crafts Council will host an online surgery with members of the judging panel on Tuesday 4 May at 12pm via Zoom. You can register for the online event via Eventbrite here.
About the Richard Seager Annual Arts Award:
The award was established in 2017, and operates as a competition open to artists, craftspeople and designers in the early stages of their careers. It seeks to encourage innovation in the use of materials, processes and design by commissioning the winner to create a piece of new work for an organisation or community which deserves recognition for its work. It provides a living legacy in Richard Seager’s memory, offers practical support to the creative community and gifts to the recipient organisation something of lasting value for their audience.
